Summer courses, art festivals, local information & more

The Village of Alfred is a perfect example of a quaint, historic college town. 坐落在阿勒格尼山脉和芬格湖之间, Alfred is home to both Alfred University and Alfred State College. 上课期间,当地人口约为1000人,是平时的四倍多. 市中心的咖啡馆和餐馆里挤满了教师和学生——艺术家, poets, actors, linguists, counselors, engineers, athletes, 商科专业的学生——他们被社区充满活力的知识和文化生活所激励.

当地传说称,这个村庄是以中世纪英格兰国王阿尔弗雷德的名字命名的(他以致力于教育他的人民而闻名). Retaining much of its turn-of-the-century charm, 市中心的历史街区被列入国家史迹名录. 阿尔弗雷德早期的陶土公司生产的瓦片至今仍在许多房屋和谷仓上使用, and inspired generations of ceramic artists and engineers at Alfred University.


纽约西部拥有丰富的文化和娱乐机会,包括:

Phillips Creek State Forest -为徒步旅行、北欧滑雪和骑马提供有标记和地图的步道系统. The entrance to the park is 10 minutes from downtown Alfred on Rte 244.
