Overview


Carved out of the wilderness at the end of the Revolutionary War, Schroeppel is a central New York town located in the southern section of Oswego County. The town comprises the communities of Oak Orchard, Gilberts Mills, Pennellville, and Phoenix. Schroeppel presents the unique story of this town from the days of the Paleo Indians of eleven thousand years ago to the suburban growth that reached the town by the 1980s. With a selection of some two hundred photographs, the book portrays the daily life of farmers whose hard work built and sustained the town; the site of the first frame house in the town (that of George C. Schroeppel); Underground Railroad routes; and the place where tools and other implements of daily life were invented and perfected.
