The Frontenac Historical Society is participating in the Annual Festival of Trees at the Ward O'Hara Museum in Auburn. There are over 125 decorated trees on display. We hope you can attend and vote for our tree which is #2. The theme this year is Cayuga Lake Through the Years.


Items to look for are small crafted sail boats, swamps, turtles, fish, "greenie", the lake monster, red winged blackbirds nesting in the cattails and swamp grasses. Also, pictures of ice harvesting, north end State Parks, steam boats and restaurants along the lake.


The Festival will run from November 19th until Saturday, December 24th. Hours are weekdays 1pm-8pm and weekends 10am-7pm. Parking and admission are free. Come and enjoy the joys of Christmas!








Our community is very willing to share their memories growing up or living in the Town of Springport and Village of Union Springs. What a wonderful gift to our community. It helps keep history alive for those who follow us.


Thank you to the two newest interviews with Charlie and Bev Schenck and George Fearon.


Check these out on the website under Videos, scrolling to "I Remember When...".


The invitation is open to any other community members who would like to share their memories. Contact the museum at 315.889.7273 and leave a message. We would love to hear from you!
