Long Description:
The last remaining one-room schoolhouse in Kent county. Erected in 1878 to serve a watermen's and farming community and was so used continuously until 1939. One teacher taught seven grades and as many as 46 students.

Cliffs Schoolhouse is an architectural landmark that served a farming and fishing community in rural Kent County, and has survived for over 125 years. Lesson plans, for the seven grades taught in the one room, are written on the blackboards by the last teacher. It is well equipped with many of its original furnishings. Restoration and preservation of Cliffs is the current project of Port of Chester Questers, with assistance from the Retired Teachers Association.
