The Henderson Central School was constructed in 19-- from brick, concrete, and steel.  Its design mimics Roman Gothic architecture.  For many many decades it was the home of the "Blue Devils", and many folks have fond memories of the school and its students, its teachers, and all the activities that were held there.  In 1993 the school began its transition into a senior citizen housing area, as a few years prior, the Henderson School District merged with the Belleville School District.
