Although we were in the area for a sad occasion our stay at the Benham School House Inn gave us an opportunity to relax and enjoy some true history. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with all our needs.
My wife had actually attended the school through her freshman year and was able to give a lot of information about the different areas in the school. The room we stayed in was her kindergarten room. The lockers are still in place in the hallways and she showed me her locker and shared lots of stories.
The first floor has had the high ceilings lowered I imagine to better control the temperature but a trip to the second floors shows the true architecture of the building and it is beautiful and a real treasure to preserve.
The history of the the whole town is worth exploring and it is a wonderful experience and don't be afraid to ask questions. The people in the area love to tell stories.
