In celebration of the Bicentennial of the Town of Greece in 2022, the Greece Historical Society is honoring the families who settled in the area before 1872 with a two-volume book set titled Pioneer Families of the Town of Greece.
Researched and written by Marie Villone Poinan and Jo Ann Ward Snyder, the set contains vignettes, photos, and input from current family members that highlight each family’s contribution to the town.
Volume 1 can be pre-ordered now and will be available in time to give as a holiday gift. Volume 2 will be coming out in the Spring of 2022 with the history of additional families.
Click here to download a form you can use to pre-order volume 1. The form will contain instructions on how to pick up your copy.
After November 29th, the book will also be available in the museum gift shop and, beginning in mid-December, it can be ordered through Amazon.com.
Come visit us to see our newest exhibit, titled “The History of Greece Olympia”, which opened on Sunday, October 24th.
You will see memorabilia and pictures of how the school has developed over the years and the changes that have occurred.
The exhibit will run through the end of our season on December 19 and possibly for sometime next year when we reopen in March.
