This is the second schoolhouse in Danforth, Maine. It was built and thought up by Dr. Samuel D. Springer, principal and superintendant in education, soon after the first school house burnt flat to the ground. Dr. Samuel D. Springer believed there should be better schools in Maine so he decided to set down his own plan of education. The school was for grades K-12 and as he followed through with his idea, Dr. Samuel D. Springer became superintendant and headmaster.
