UTICA — The Hufford House Museum, home of the Utica Historical Society is open every Sunday 2 to 4 p.m. for tours.
Displays have changed, and the public is encouraged to come see them. North Fork Girl Scouts are celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouting through the years, “Out of the Past,” the beginning of Utica and our pioneers; the glass display is always interesting because of the history of the five glass factories, workers and artifacts; “Wars — Revolutionary through Vietnam,” reminds us of all who have fought to keep our United States safe and free; not completed is a display called “Do you remember these people, places and things?” One of the most popular is Michele Baker and her weaving loom. It is a real learning experience to watch as she makes beautiful rugs.
An archaeology presentation by Fred Groseclose and Tom Debolt about the Knisley Mound south of Utica and other mounds in the area will be Sunday, April 22, at 2:30 p.m. in the carriage house behind the Hufford House Museum.
Plan to visit and bring a friend. Meetings and programs are free and open to public. For more information, call Phyllis Riley, 740-892-3789.
