The Websters Crossing school was sold to Kenneth Vanscooter for $400. He lived in Rochester and anticipated making this into a home, but never followed through. It was sold again, but later on, James Vanscooter (who lived next door) purchased it for unpaid taxes. Jim said that he went to school there before it closed and he went to Wayland central. At that time he lived on the other hill and walked quite a distance to the school. He noted that the land around it was prime farming and at that time, during recess or after school, the teacher would let the students pick potatoes or help the farmer in harvesting crops. On the side of the wood shed are several names carved into the wood, very obvious was the name of Herbert White.
The last teacher at the school was Satie Jacobs.
