Mission statement:    Creation of the mtuptoncentral.wordpress.com website, was to develop and implement an informational site to impact all viewers by giving them a dynamic and interactive vivid picture of Mt. Upton’s history.

The senior page gives you a really good picture of just how small Mt Upton Central was.  These students are the only ones who graduated from the Central school in its short 55 years. We are a family and should feel a real sense of pride in our school and in each other.

      What a good idea – to walk down memory lane! I hear the good news that Rock Inn, with a new name, is reborn! Tom & Stasia, Linda, Judy, Susie, and Mary Knoetgen are smiling!

    Yes, Rock Inn is open again as the Rockin Roadhouse. They have built an outside deck across the whole south side and removed the stone facing. They put brown siding on the south side. Have good food, wings, and steaks. Our family had corned beef on Sunday, May 12th. There were 10 of us and the food was very good. Try it for yourselves next time you are hungry.

      Yey. Rock Inn has a great view of our house across the river. Spent many happy days paddling and fishing on that beautiful river, trapping the ridge above the house and collecting arrowheads after the O’Hara’s plowed.

      Marilyn Bump, Dick Palmer, Dick Yeager and Joan Goetz were in my class in ‘50. Many happy memories on the playing fields and making mischief
      When possible. Somehow I received an acceptable academic background, by osmosis I guess and the skills of
      some great teachers.
      What is the website where I fan get more info.

    This site is just so great. I’m the 81 yr. old son of Guy Post, growing up on the Cope Road. Dad had the milk route to Mt. Upton. My great grandfather, Levi Lamphere had a Cooper shop up across the tracks in the 1860 & 70’s, until the big saw mill burned. Would like to e-mail a photo, if I can find an address.

    “The Corner stone is right of the front entrance at the corner which turns back toward the school. It was pretty well covered with growth but Allen knocked it down and got these photos. His battery was running down in the camera so he took one of me with the dog after he went to the car to put in new batteries, in back of my right shoulder is the corner where the stone is below the small window about it, the date is on the front of that corner. I sure would like to know what was put in that stone, if a capsule of history? I believe the first graduating class was 1935”. Mary Brooks Gilmore

    Are there still decendents of Alvin Van Fleet in Mt Upton, or really anywhere who are into genealogy or their relatives? I am the grandson of Alvin’s sisters, I believe, Harriet Van Fleet Bentley, of Cambridge and later Shushan and Susan Jane Van Fleet Wengenroth of Middletown, NY.

    If any of them contact this website, could you confirm they are Van Fleet decendents, then, if they are interested in communicating with relatives, give them my email address.

    Thank you. God bless.

    Unfortunately, the “Memorial Gone but not forgotten” page has been lost while attempting to post another name. I have been unable to retrieve this page although WordPress.com has informed me that for a fee of $75. they would retrieve it. I have decided not to retrieve this page unless there was enough intrest out there to do so. I’m asking you to express that intrest, as there is no need to spend the time and money if no one is interested. Thank you

      I feel the memorial page is of great value and should be restored and continued. I would be glad to contribute to its return. Currently I am visiting my son and his family in S. Korea (he is a Warrant Officer 2 flying Blackhawk helicopters I in the Army) but will be more than willing to pay for the memorial page restoration upon my return later this month.

      Thank you for the work you do keeping he site running.

      Take care,
      Steve W.

    Does anyone have any contact information for Beth Haynes, class of 1953? I believe her married name is Tompkins and she lives in California. She was our neighbor when I was young.
