Regarding Mohegan Lake School World War I Memorial. St. Mary's Church is the last remnant of the famous Mohegan Lake School, a military academy for boys that turned out some of the leaders of the day. As early as 1880, and until 1934, Mohegan Lake School drew cadets from as far as Europe, the Caribbean and states like Vermont, Georgia and Iowa. Teaching courses from penmanship to Thucididyes, the school produced such thinkers as Robert Moses, the architect of much of modern New York, and several Rockefellers. With an enrollment limited to 42, on eight acres of buildings and parade grounds, the school emphasized "a thorough Christian preparatory education . . . in an atmosphere free from the distracting and pernicious influences of large towns and railroad centers."
