The former Bowery Beach School at the corner of Wheeler Road and Two Lights Road in Cape Elizabeth has belonged to the local Lions Club since 1983, but began life as a one-room schoolhouse in 1855. It’s on the 2017 “Places in Peril” list issued Sept. 19 by Greater Portland Landmarks because damage from rot and rodents, coupled by funding shortfalls, leave what is one of about a dozen surviving schools of its historic pedigree left standing in the area in danger of being lost.
