The Whipple School was at the southeast corner of Fourth Avenue and 121st Street, putting it just inside the 2nd Ward of the Village of Lansingburgh, though it was generally described as being in Adamsville. The building remains and in recent years it has been used by the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) Lansingburgh Family Resource Center.
