Historic photo of the Hope Village Schoolhouse

The Hope Village Schoolhouse was used to school children displaced by the expansion of the Scituate Reservoir. Later converted to the Scituate Police Station, the building was condemned due to mold damage in 2017, and donated to the Hope-Jackson Fire Company to use as administrative offices after repairs.

SCITUATE – The old Hope Village Schoolhouse, which later functioned as the Scituate Police Station, is on its way to a full renovation by the Hope-Jackson Fire Department that now occupies it, with help from grants to preserve the historic building.

Fire Chief John Robinson said the first phase of renovations, roof repairs, are completed thanks to a $10,000 matching grant from the 1772 Foundation. The chief said the grant was matched using American Rescue Plan Act funds.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
