History of Tioronda School

Lying abandoned beside Matteawan Creek is this historic school in Beacon, New York. The school was built in 1865 and designed by famed architect, Frederick Clarke Withers, who also designed the property’s main estate, Craig House.

Throughout its history, the building has been used as a school, chapel, and an emergency hospital during the Great Flu Epidemic of 1918. It might surprise you to know that it contains an indoor pool and basketball court and was last used as a gymnasium.

Today, Tioronda School stands sadly abandoned just like most of the Tioronda Estate aka Craig House.
