Greater Oneonta Historical Society to Hold Harvest Season Events
The Greater Oneonta Historical Society will present a special harvest season event for children on Saturday afternoon November 23 at the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street. Kim Back will teach children how to create a traditional corn husk craft. The event is from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. This free program for children is presented by the GOHS children's programming committee. Space is limited, so reservations are recommended by calling the History Center at (607) 432-0960.
November 23 is also the last day of the History Center's exhibition on the Oneonta '49ers about the six men who left Oneonta together in 1849 for California and the Gold Rush. Those six included future railroad magnate Collis Huntington and Carleton Watkins, groundbreaking photographer of the American West.
The History Center is open Mondays through Fridays 12:00 noon to 4:00 PM and Saturdays 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
