In September 2001, the Gull School House was moved from the Green property in Amston to the center of town, adjacent to the Hebron Town Office Building and the Horton House. After three years, the interior of the Gull has been restored and a ready-to-view museum will be available as a result of Eagle Scout Will Aubin's project. Will's crew battled below zero temperatures to sand, scrape, and paint the interior. Much thanks goes to Willie Bell and the Town of Hebron for their support in this project!

Tours will be available from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 12. Grand Re-opening Ceremonies are planned for 1:00 p.m. with Town Officials, members of the Henrietta Green family, and Historical Society members in attendance.

Follow the progress of Will and his crew though the picture gallery.
