Schroeppel is a town of about 8,000 residents in southeast Oswego County. Among the communities that make up the Town of Schroeppel are Pennellville, a hamlet in the center of town, and the village of Phoenix, where the area schools are located. The Oswego River flows through the center of the Village of Phoenix, and provides a unique location for shopping and recreation.
The community has a business district and parks along the Oswego Canal, including Lock Island Park and Henley Park, which contains the historic Bride House Museum’s showcase of village and canal system artifacts. A June Strawberry Festival and July 4 fireworks bring the community together in the village each summer, and the shopping and entertainment of the City of Syracuse is only a half hour drive south.
