Ken Gottry - Cambridge NY History

Formal education in Cambridge started in 1799 with a vote to open a private school. It was built on Academy Street and eventually became Cambridge Washington Academy. In the 1870's we had the Union Schools. In 1891 we finally united into a single school today referred to simply as "the Old School". In Sept-1951 the current Cambridge Central School opened. Along the way, the townships of White Creek, Cambridge, and Jackson were home to 39 one-room schoolhouses. Below is my presentation about the journey.
