Efforts to Save Early School Site Associated with Caroline Phipps

This blog has dealt in the past with the subject of Phipps Union Seminary, which was established in 1833 in Albion, Orleans County, New York, by Caroline Phipps. A news item from a bit earlier this year concerned efforts to preserve an old stone schoolhouse in Orleans County, New York. The tiny building is said to have replaced an earlier log cabin where Caroline Phipps taught.

Caroline Phipps, according to the article, began her seminary at a location “where the County Clerk’s Building now stands.” Caroline, as noted in the earlier post, was a daughter of Joseph Phipps, and was born at Rome, New York. She married Col. H.L. Achilles of Rochester in 1839.
