Schoolhouse Plaza

Schoolhouse Rock! Well, no, it's Schoolhouse Plaza.

Schoolhouse Plaza in Millburn is, as one might guess, named for the building’s original purpose.

Washington School, c. 1900

The Washington School was constructed in 1895. Its opening forced (permitted?) several small wooden schools around town to close down, so most local elementary school students attended classes here.

At the moment (2011), the building is home to Squires Associates (LLP), Michael Cohn Associates (Insurance-Investments), Freundlich and Reisen (LLP), Biebelberg & Martin (Attorneys at Law), and possibly more.
