Historic Geneva’s 2022 Fall Lecture Series will go on the road to historic public buildings in the city. The series starts with a program by archivist Becky Chapin about the Geneva Public Library building at 244 Main Street. This building has been home to just two organizations in its 188-year history, the library and the Universalist Church. Becky will look at the changes the structure has undergone from its construction by the Universalists in 1834 to the present day. The program will be in-person only and starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Geneva Public Library.

This program is being held in conjunction with the upcoming My Geneva is…Then and Now exhibit which incorporates contemporary photos of spots in the city with images from the Historic Geneva photo collection. The series is supported in part by the Samuel B. Williams fund for programs in the Humanities and is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Historic Geneva office at 315-789-5151.

Historic Geneva tells the stories of Geneva, New York at the Geneva History Museum, Rose Hill Mansion, and Johnston House, and online at historicgeneva.org.
