STANFORD, N.Y. -- A one-room, frame schoolhouse built in Stanford in 1910 is one step closer to inclusion on the New York State and National Registers of Historic Places, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The Attlebury Schoolhouse was included on a list of 19 properties, resources and districts recommended for the honors by the state Board for Historic Preservation, according to the Journal.

If approved by the state's Historic Preservation Office, the schoolhouse will be listed on New York's Register of Historic Places. From there, it will be nominated for the national register, according to the Journal.

The schoolhouse was built after Attlebury's previous school house, built in the 19th century, burned during an accidental fire, according to the Journal.
