Town officials and what appears to be a work crew are pictured In January, 1891, after a big batch of Stony Brook ice flooded to block Boston Neck Road at the road’s low point near East Street. The Stony Brook regional schoolhouse was threatened with severe damage. The road was later raised and shifted a bit and the schoolhouse, which had been expanded to two rooms before the ice flood, was moved a short distance up and back to its present location, where it serves as a private home.
