Shoreham-Wading River school district officials want to sell or lease the former Briarcliff Elementary School building, Newsday reported. The mansion was built by oil tycoon Richard Upham in 1907. The school district bought the building in 1950 and shuttered it in 2014 because of declining enrollment and other issues. Officials felt the 30,000-square-foot building just costs too much to keep up. Officials would like to see someone buy the building or lease it and use it for senior housing or a recreation center. They haven’t sought any kind of historical designation as that might hobble future owners. Officials haven’t yet gotten an estimate on the property’s value. [Newsday]
