HistoryEdit

In December 2012, Greene Street purchased the property known as "the doctor's house" on the corner of Greene Street and West School House Lane. The building was demolished and the school hopes to add more green space to its campus.[3] After demolition, Greene Street Friends built a porous, landscaped parking lot.[citation needed]
