This log house was the first school in Interlaken(NY) and stood north of the Goodman Hotel, where Railroad Avenue is today(1935). It had a mammoth fire-place in which were used logs eight and ten feet long. There were three or four other log houses and two frame houses there at that time. It was equipped with slab seats. The name of the first teacher
