October 8, 2023, the Frontenac Historical Society & Museum will unveil a portrait of Zobedia Alleman, a former resident of Union Springs who was critical to the Women's Suffrage Movement.

A statewide re-grant program developed by the NYS Council on the Arts and administered by the Auburn Public Theatre, awarded the Frontenac Historical Society a grant to have a portrait of Zobedia Alleman painted for display at the museum. Jen Soucy, an artist, resident and board member painted the portrait which will be unveiled the evening of October 8th prior to the Centennial program by Bill Hecht.

The program by Bill Hecht , to follow the unveiling, will be to remember the anniversaries of the Town of Springport and Village of Union Springs thru photos, maps, and dialogue. It is our history and attendees will be encouraged to share their memories of living and growing up in the town or village and thus become part of recorded history.

Additionally, the Doremus Painting raffle will be drawn at the conclusion of the evening's program.

Event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
