The extraordinary history of this old stone schoolhouse was painstakingly researched and chronicled by author and former owner of the property, Erik Barnouw in his book âœThe House with a Pastâ. During Barnouwâs quest to learn more about the building, he discovered that, built in 1826, it originally served as a church for the Mormon pioneers during their early movement west, and thereafter as a one room schoolhouse for the young town of Benson, being aptly named "The Temple Schoolhouse". Rescued from abandonment and neglect, Barnouw restored the old stone building and joined it with a well-matched addition in the 1960âs. Situated on 3.3 acres, this unique property has had many updates over years (see attached list) including 16' x 32' in-ground fiberglass pool and the additions of a matching stone-faced 2 car garage with upstairs storage and a 36âx 36â 4 stall Morton building ready for your animals or work shop. Loved for decades as the Barnouw family's summer retreat, itâs now time for this old stone schoolhouse to start a new chapter. Whether a year round home or a weekend Vermont getaway, youâll enjoy the privacy of being off the beaten path.
