111 YEARS AGO

At the turn of the twentieth century, nearly everyone in Farmington attended district schools, which were one-room neighborhood schools that only went as far as eighth grade. “Higher Education” Meant high school, grades nine through twelve. One of the local high schools was Macedon Academy, in what is now Macedon Center on Route 31F. Many of its graduates were from Farmington. This charming photo shows the Macedon Academy graduation class of 1899. The two girls on the left are Farmington residents. May Gardner is standing, and Carrie Allen is seated.
