Did you know that Cornell University offered a summer camp for engineering students right here in Schuyler County?
Jim Allen will discuss Camp Cornell; a summer surveying and mapping course offered to engineering students, along the shores of Cayuta Lake, beginning in 1929. Jim will provide a bit of history for the Cayuta Lake area, the early settlers, finishing with Camp Cornell.
Join the Schuyler County Historical Society in partnership with Lake Grove Park for this unique history talk. “Jim’s talk will provide people with a deeper look into and understanding of, an all too often overlooked part of Schuyler County History,” according to Executive Director Heather O’Grady-Evans. As part of the talk, those in attendance will be able to take a tour of Lake Grove Park, and take a walk along the shores of Cayuta Lake to the location of Camp Cornell. There will be golf carts provided for those who are unable to make the walk.
As always our history talks are FREE and open to the public!
Lake Grove Park is located at 2619 County Route 6, Alpine, NY 14805
