On Tuesday, July 20, the Middleborough Historical Commission will meet with the Green School Preservation Committee to discuss the color of the Green School. Following mitigation work to remove contaminated soil surrounding the building last fall and winter, the schoolhouse which is located in the historic Green section of Middleborough was structurally stabilized and the exterior primed. The schoolhouse now requires painting. An infomal poll conducted recently on Recollecting Nemasket's sister site Green School History indicates that the majority of respondents prefer the building to remain green, a color with which it has been painted for many years, though it is unlikely to have been the original historic color of the building. The Historical Commission meets at 7.30 pm in Middleborough Town Hall.
