Local historian Tim Carroll will present a program on the Ogdensburg School on Tuesday, July 20, at 2 p.m. at Peninsula Community Library.

The Ogdensburg School was located on Center Road, a couple of houses past Kroupa Road on the left if you’re heading north. The building is still there and is now home to Jennifer and Bob Venigoni, who are excellent stewards of the iconic school.
