2017 HISTORY FAIR
Saturday, September 30th at Hartford Central School from 10 am - 4 pm

Our theme will be "Forts & Battles" (of all kinds!). It will include the "battle" of women winning the right to vote in New York State. 2017 marks the one hundredth anniversary of that momentous event which took place in 1917. We will be sending out information to historians and historical societies. We hope you will consider having an exhibit featuring your town or village. Stay tuned for updates. For questions or more info, contact Debi Craig at dcraig1@hughes.net.
