As a retired US cavalry scout, I am curious. I assume there was a cavalry troop stationed somewhere around Manlius at one time. I know there was a military academy in Manlius not too awfully long ago. perhaps they were related?

The Manlius School, which merged with Pebble Hill school in 1970, was located on Route 92 (the site of the current Verbeck Estates). It did have a cavalry troop, but I am not sure if it was related to the road. I work in the alumni office of the successor school, Manlius Pebble Hill, and will keep my eye out for information from our archives.

Thank you Tina. I was have been curious about this for a long time. I noticed several "cavalry" related names along the road and in Manlius.

Questions like this may also be directed to the Manlius Historical Society... they have a great wealth of information about not just the Village, but the entire Town of Manlius.
