Located on the shores of Cazenovia Lake in Central New York, founded in 1793 by John Lincklaen. The village of Cazenovia is a center of commerce and culture. This small, yet sophisticated town has long been a favorite with tourists. The summer is filled with picnics at one of the many parks around the lake, a Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, band concerts on Thursdays and antique car shows every Wednesday. Theres even a Winter Olympics put on by the Cazenovia High School.
Located in town is the campus of Cazenovia College. It was named “One of America’s Best Colleges” by U.S. News and World Report. This small, independent 4-year college is an important part of the community and lends a scholarly feeling to the town’s ambience.
A walk down Albany Street reveals the village's historic architecture. Each style of architecture serves as a window to a different period of history. You don't have to go to far to see its beauty.
The houses on Lower Lincklaen street were built during the 1820's and 1830's, and are an example of Greek Revival architecture. The Gothic cottage on Albany Street, with its extremely evident steep roof and inset front porch was completed in 1847 and eventually donated to the town for office space.
During the late nineteenth century, "Lakeland" style architecture popped up in a number of places on the lake. Lakeland architecture is reminiscent of a time when Cazenovia Lake served as an ideal summer vacation spot for rich urban tourists, who constructed masterpiece homes on its shores.
Through the years, the village has undergone a number of changes. Recently though, the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation was formed to help preserve the unique character of the village.
