Local Oral Histories Featured in Community Dialogue

Stories of Land and Water
Join Hanford Mills Museum Wednesday, April 22 at 7 pm for a free program featuring rarely heard oral histories from people who lived in East Meredith and grew up around the Mill. Topics of the talks, which were collected in 1985, include transformations in land use, water power, ice harvesting, environmental impacts and economic development. There also will be an open discussion on the importance of the land to our community and region.

The program will be held in the Post Office Conference Room at Hanford Mills Museum. Refreshments will be provided. The program is free and open to all.

This program is made possible by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities. The event is a collaboration between Hanford Mills Museum and SUNY Oneonta’s Cooperstown Graduate Program (CGP). For more information about oral histories from our region visit the CGP Community Stories website.
