Overview


Cortland Countyâ??'s breathtaking vistas resulted from

glaciers, which carved its valleys, shaped its hills, and watered the region through rivers, lakes, and creeks. It was virgin territory until just after the Revolutionary War, when New York State designated thousands of acres to be compensation for enlistees in two post-war regiments. By 1808, the population approached 8,000, and people began to

petition the state legislature to create a county separate from Onondaga. They named Cortland County after the stateâ??'s first lieutenant governor. As you delve into Cortland County, the prolific and diverse

photographic collection will take you on a journey into the past, illustrating the nuances of life, both work and play, that have been at the core of Cortland Countyâ??'s history and prosperity. Learn how these vibrant communities evolved into what they are today through the devotion of the historians at Cortland County Historical Society.

Meet the Author


Only 25 miles long and 19 miles wide, with a population that has never exceeded 50,000, Cortland County has an enviable record for producing inventors, lawmakers, educators, entertainers, explorers, journalists, and scientists. The archives of the Cortland County Historical Society and the artifacts in its Suggett House Museum record the human achievement for more than two centuries of residents who gained fame at home and around the globe. Author Mary Ann Kane, director of the Cortland County Historical Society, has compiled this collection as a tribute to Cortland County&#39s past and to the people who have helped shape its history.
