In a message dated 5/29/2008 8:17:35 AM Eastern Standard Time, writes:
When my grandmother graduated from Horseheads High School in 1902, the exercises were held in Prichard Hall. I had always assumed that Prichard Hall was the auditorium in  the old brick school. A couple years ago I was sitting in the car on Hanover Square and noted the front of the old Hibbard Hardware was repainted and over a doorway next to the store was painted "Prichard Hall". The hardware is now a lighting and carpet place and I inquired. An accommodating chap opened a side door that led to the wide stairway up to Prichard Hall. They use it to store carpet, but otherwise you could still set up chairs and have a ceremony up on stage. Some time, if you are hanging out in Horseheads, you might want to take a look.

The attached invitation for the 1899 graduation had no name attached, but the Prichard Hall venue prompted this email.
