Anna Ward's Notebook, 1806
 Entire Record

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.
