CCHS Lunch & Learn: "The Cortland Academy in Homer: Its Origins and History”

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Please join Martin Sweeney, Historian for the Town and Village of Homer, to learn more about the beginnings of a school on the green in Homer. This year is the bicentennial of state-approved education in Homer, NY. There has been a state- approved school on the Homer Green since 1819, starting with the Cortland Academy. Some highlights of the origin and history of that academy will be discussed. Bring your own lunch if you wish, and we will provide dessert and beverages.
