Hitchcock Hall (demolished in 1968)

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Ithaca Heritage


Named for its beloved first principal, Martha Hitchcock (1869-1966), Hitchcock Hall was the forerunner of the Cayuga Heights Elementary School, located at 110 East Upland Road. It was a beautiful, rambling Tudor-style building in a park-like setting. Sadly, the era of urban renewal brought its demolition in 1968. The Ithaca City School District replaced it with the current building designed by Levatich & Miller, which has been added on to since.
