Burnt Hills School of Agriculture & Homemaking

BH-BL is officially 100 years old today

On this day in 1915, three one-room schoolhouses joined to form the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Union Free School District--New York state's first "consolidated" school district. Over the years, the district grew, one-room schoolhouses continued to merge, other schools were built, and it went through a series of name changes before becoming the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central School District. There will be a Centennial Celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony on the new Centennial multi-purpose turf field at BH-BL High School on Saturday, Oct. 10. The day-long event begins at 11:30 a.m. We hope to see you there!
