Notable People with a Cortland County County Connection


Levi Chase

What makes a community? The place is important and so are the buildings, sights, and sounds. But a community is really about the people. It is all of us living and working together that make Cortland what it is. We are lucky to have had a number of “neighbors” who have made important contributions to Cortland. Some have even touched lives beyond Cortland. Several have national importance. (Did you know we have strong ties to Abraham Lincoln?) Click on the links below and get to know your neighbors. You might be amazed at who has lived, and worked, and walked where you have.
