Sackett Bridge

Sackett Bridge at the head of Beebe Lake and the Beebe Lake Trail are dedicated in honor of Colonel Henry Woodward Sackett, a generous donor from the Class of 1875. This is another site that, while not technically a war memorial, does commemorate the contributions made by a veteran and an alumnus who was very generous in his support of the University. Colonel Sackett was a non-commissioned officer in Squadron A, New York’s noted cavalry organization, when in 1896 he was appointed Aide-de-camp for the New York State Governor.
