AP U.S. History Takes Historical Walking Trip Through Rye

As part of discussions about public commemoration, students U.S. and AP U.S. History took a walking tour through downtown Rye to explore the town's historic landmarks.

Stops included the memorials for both World Wars, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, as well as the 9/11 Memorial and the former Rye High School. Students also visited the Caroline O’Day Post Office, named after the longtime Rye resident and suffragette who helped establish the Women’s Division of the New York State Democratic Committee with Eleanor Roosevelt. 

Inside the post office, students observed the 1930s Works Progress Administration mural depicting life in Rye during the colonial era. The trip was a terrific reminder that history is within reach every day!
