Thanks to everyone  who helped with the Prominent Women exhibit!  We had a good turn out on our opening; the exhibit will remain up for the forseeable future.

Now for the next project?

In other amusing news, I came across this newspaper clipping in a scrapbook, the New Hartford Historical Society was founded in October, 1938.  The first board members were John Marshall Holcomb, Lucy M. Creevey, Harriet M. Stone, Harold P. Shapiro, Margaret Sinnott, and Harry M. Smith.

It managed an historical room in the old library, equipped with several school desks, an old foot stove from the Town Hill Church, a pair of andirons, and a variety of books.

We haven’t moved far, just down the street; but we do have a much larger book and artifact collection.
