CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Several 11th Grade students at Horace Greeley High School, with the support and assistance of the New Castle Historical Society and the Chappaqua Central School District, have created a new permanent exhibit about Horace Greeley.
The exhibit at the school will provide students, parents, community members, and visitors with detailed information about the life and legacy of Horace Greeley. The exhibit explores Greeley's life as a newspaper editor, a political voice and thinker, and as a gentleman farmer in Chappaqua.
The artifacts on display are part of the collection maintained by the New Castle Historical Society. The New Castle Historical Society’s Collections Committee and students from one of teacher Suzanne Mosca’s 11th-Grade American history classes have worked several months on this project.
The students made several visits to the Horace Greeley House Museum throughout the project for tours, to conduct research, and to work with the Historical Society’s Collection. The students also participated in a guided walking-tour of Greeley’s former farm, what is now much of downtown Chappaqua.
The exhibit is near the counseling office and will officially open on Thursday at 3 p.m. The opening will include a brief ceremony and refreshments. For more information, contact Cassie Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org or (914)-238-4666.
