| Anna Ward's Notebook, 1806
When Anna Ward was 16, she attended Eastchester’s first
school. Her notebook displays her mastery of geography, as well
as other disciplines. It is also an example of the penmanship of
the time, which was executed with a quill pen. Anna later became
the wife of Major Jackson Odell of Greenburgh.
The school Anna attended
was razed when the Eastchester Marble Schoolhouse, located near
the intersection of California and New Rochelle roads, was built
in 1835. The Marble Schoolhouse is listed in the Westchester
County Inventory of Historic Places.
