We are honored to have received the Director's Award at the Festival of Trees for 2020 held at the Ward W. O'Hara Agricultural Museum. Our tree recognized the breadth and depth of history in our area as noted by photos of historic markers found in the towns of Aurelius, Fleming, Ledyard and Springport. Stop and look at these markers as you travel the roads in the county. The signs are blue with yellow lettering and give a brief history of the importance of the place they are physically located.

Thank you to all who visited the Festival and voted for our tree. Thank you to the Agricultural Museum for sponsoring and hosting this display of trees. It is a wonderful Christmas event every year.

Due to the rapidly changing situation regarding COVID, it is with great regret that the museum must temporarily close the Open Hours formerly available on Tuesday from 9:30 - 11:30am. We will continue to regularly assess the situation and, when safe conditions return, we will look forward to re-opening and seeing you and many other visitors. Thank you for your understanding.

Best wishes to you and yours for a safe and healthy holiday season!

Enjoy some history of the Union Springs area! Thanks to Chris Shattuck and her blog entitled "Happenings in Union Springs", there are three new videos of historical marker dedications. The 1st video recognizes an active suffragette Zobedia Alleman who lived on Homer St., the 2nd video is the South Mill Pond on Factory St. recognizing the importance of available water supply to early businesses, and the 3rd recognizes a former Quaker Meeting House on Cayuga St., now the Springport Library. The historical markers are thanks to the Pomeroy Foundation and the research work of members of the Frontenac Historical Society and the Springport Library.
