Preble, located just north of the border of Cortland County with venues such as the Cortland Repertory Theatre, have announced a set of concerts held in Dwyer Memorial Park, located on the north end of Little York Lake.
The park is 55 acres wide, with the main Pavilion operated by the Cortland Repertory Theatre. There are also three smaller pavilions throughout the park that can be reserved for events including family reunions and large cookouts.
Preble was originally a part of Tully in Onondaga County. On April 8, 1808, it separated from Tully and became the northern border of newly formed Cortland County. The population of Preble in 1825 was 1327. Todays population in Preble is 1314. The town was named for Commodore Edward Preble, a naval hero of The Barbary Wars. Preble consists of 28 miles of land which were given to soldiers of the Revolution in lieu of money for service during the war. Preble has always been famous for its rich soil and dairy farming.
The first congregational church in Preble opened way back in 1804. The The Cortland Repertory theatre is located within the Dwyer Memorial Park.
There are many events located in the park, along with a series of summer events and concerts for families and people who love live music.
