My hobby is family history and that interest has led me to preserve the history of St. Mary's School

Albion, NY (PRWEB) November 15, 2012

Albion, New York residents Jeri and Lou Becker are thrilled to invite you to visit the Erie Canal Schoolhouse Bed and Breakfast located in their quaint, Western New York village. The property sits adjacent to the historic Erie Canal and gives guests direct access to the canal path.

Even more significant is the fact that the bed & breakfast now occupies the building formerly known as St. Mary's Assumption school. The school was originally built in 1907, offering three classrooms, a library, an auditorium and living quarters for the nuns who taught at the school. Renovations have made one of the classrooms and the library available as guest rooms. One classroom is public space for all guests to use while the top-floor auditorium features a public display of area history.

"My hobby is family history and that interest has led me to preserve the history of St. Mary's School," said Becker, owner of Erie Canal Schoolhouse Bed And Breakfast. "Erie Canal Schoolhouse B&B is the ideal place for celebrating a special occasion, for resting after a long day's journey on the Erie Canal or for holding your business meeting or retreat."

The renovations at the former schoolhouse have created a breathtaking property offering all the charm of the most well loved B&B while holding true to the character of the school atmosphere. It's an ideal place for summer canal travelers as well as those touring New York state and its many historical locales. The Erie Canal Schoolhouse Bed and Breakfast offers 2000 ft.² of guest space, private baths, flatscreen TVs, free WiFi, and access to the Erie Canal path.
