Family getting too big? Forget a house. How about an entire school? There’s one for sale. Kidding of course about a family but someone could convert the old, long-abandoned Shimer School in Pohatcong into offices or something else.

According to, it has sat empty since 2005 and mayor David Slack says it kills him to see it not being used. He has an emotional attachment since he went to that very school from Kindergarten through fourth grade.

It sits on two acres at 599 New Brunswick Avenue and it could be all yours if you’re the highest bidder. It goes up for auction later this month.
