Description Union School District No. 201 (Section 11) built in the 1840s by stockholders of the Hudson Colony on land donated by Samuel Cox. Due to additional space being needed in 1862 the old Oneida Station store was moved to Section 15 and renovated for use as the school. The building pictured was built in 1870. It burned in 1920 and was rebuilt the same year. Union School remained opened until additional classrooms were built at the Hudson School in 1953. The old school was used by the American Legion Post 124 and the Boy Scouts. Ronald Shelton bought the building in 1990 renovating it for a residence.
