Cream Hill Agricultural School

One of America's First Schools Dedicated to Scientific Agriculture

Founded in 1845 by Dr. Samuel Gold and his son Theodore in Cornwall, CT,  this school is one of the earliest schools dedicated to the teaching of scientific agriculture in the United States.  Theodore S. Gold, after the death of his father in 1869, closed the Cream Hill Agricultural School.  Theodore later became involved as a trustee and served on the subcommittee entrusted with the organization of the Storrs Agricultural School which eventually became the University of Connecticut.
