History[edit]

The hamlet is named after Richard Pennell M.D., of New York. His wife inherited the land from her father, George C. Schroeppel. Running through the area was a stream, called by the local Indian tribe Ahinahtanaganus (translated: "big fish water") upon which, in 1833 Dr. Pennell commissioned a sawmill, which was built by Laren Seymour.

In an 1878 study,[1] the hamlet was located on the New York and Oswego Midland Railroad, and contained a general store, cheese-factory, the saw-mill, a brick-yard, a blacksmithy, a railroad depot, telegraph and express offices, a hotel, a Universalist church, and a brick school-house. The population at that time was estimated to be around 150.

The burial ground in the hamlet is the burial place of Dr. and Mrs. Pennell, and also Henry W. Schroeppel.[2]
