Inscription, found in "The Song of Hiawatha" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Published by Hurst and Co., 1898.

In loving memory of Hartwick Seminary Academies class of 1928 and of Hartwick College class of 1933

A Bicentennial gift to Hartwick College honoring John Christopher Hartwick who proposed to have a school for the Indians thus Hartwick Seminary was founded 1794-1941, forerunner of Hartwick College.

The inscription sums up the history of this local school fairly well.
