The General Brown Central School District is located at the end of the Seaway Trail, where the Black River meets Lake Ontario. The area prides itself on being a safe, family-oriented community with many nearby recreational opportunities and attractions.
The school is the center for community activities, with broad support for our students’ academics, athletics, and performing arts. Other community highlights include public libraries, volunteer fire districts, Scout troops, American Legion Posts, and a village-run youth committee with a summer program within the district. The area’s ties to General Jacob Brown and the War of 1812 is celebrated every June with a festival known as General Brown Days.
The area has many opportunities for outdoor activities, such as boating, sailing, kayaking, camping, hunting, fishing, and whitewater rafting. Waterfront property is within the district, including Pillar Point and Black River Bay, providing easy access. The district is also close to several New York State Parks and the Thousand Islands. Downhill and cross-country skiing opportunities are available nearby.
