Knowledge & Protection Yesterday and Today In Latham
Whether you are a student, homeowner, or provide products and services to others, knowledge is critical to your success. The founders of Latham recognized how important education was even dating back to the early 1800s when the area was divided into school districts so that farmer’s children would have access to a teacher and library.
The Latham area was known as School District #10 Town of Watervliet and there were under 100 students attending. In 1922 the Latham School, a two- room, two-story schoolhouse was built.
In 1922 the community also recognized they needed to be protected from fires and the Latham Fire Company was formed. The Fire Company used hand- and horse-pulled fire equipment. The fire alarm was an old steel wheel from a train that hung at the fire house. When there was a fire, someone would bang a sledgehammer on the steel wheel to alert the fire team and town.
Today, obviously the school districts and fire protection have advanced to being the fundamental source of education and safety in the Latham. We are proud to offer homeowners in Latham the same platform—education and safety—when it comes to their fireplaces and chimney care. Our team at Northeastern Fireplace and Design is here to work with you and looks forward helping you love and enjoy your fireplace!
