|The 1937 Root School on Union Village Road in Norwich, Vermont, is an example of the One Room School property type and meets the registration requirements as stated in the Educational Resources of Vermont Multiple Property Documentation Form. The Root School is architecturally and historically significant at the state and local levels as a very good example of a one-room school built in the second quarter of the 20th century. It is not only rare as a relatively late example of a one-room schoolhouse but its level of architectural integrity- both exterior and interior - is outstanding. This is quite rare for a property type that was commonly sold as private homes, stores or offices after 1945, and as a result significantly altered to accommodate new uses. After educational use ceased in 1945, the Root School became a community clubhouse and is notable and significant as a one-room rural school that retains its original classroom interior. It is also architecturally significant as a very good example of the restrained Colonial Revival style that used only one or two small, stylistic elements and is typically seen in rural schools. At the Root School, for example, the classical entry porch highlights an otherwise plain building.
