Discover the Glorious Past of Seneca Falls

Have you ever driven around Seneca Falls and wondered where they came up with the names of some of the streets, buildings and such? Who, what or was a Rumsey, Bayard, or even a Mynderse? Why should we honor these individuals when there are so many more important people in our lives?What about the questions on most tourist minds….”Where are the Falls?” and what are the “No Sovereign Nation” signs? “What happened in Seneca Falls, why are there so many huge homes?” Well if these questions have been rolling around your brain then come to the Seneca Falls Historical Society every other Thursday during the fall to discuss these people, events and local history.This program offered by the Seneca Falls Historical Society in conjunction with the New York State Council for the Humanities will throw light on the importance of a small town’s place in history. Using resources form the Society’s extensive collection we will discuss the why, where and the how of the rise of Seneca Falls to prominence. Join us starting Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 2:30PM to 4:00PM in our charming Victorian Dining room for tea, cookies and lively conversation. The program is free and open to the public.
