Have you ever wondered about the families that once lived in the Prouty-Chew House, home of Historic Geneva and the Geneva History Museum? At our November History Sandwiched In program, Director of Education, Anne Dealy, will share the story of the Prouty family. Three generations of the family lived at 543 South Main Street between 1842 and 1890. Historic Geneva is fortunate enough to have not only their house, but materials that document what their life like during many of the years they lived here.

This is a lunchtime series of short presentations conducted on the first Wednesday of the month during the workday lunch hour, from 12:30–1:30 p.m. The program will be presented in person at the Geneva History Museum and simulcast virtually through Zoom. Masks will be required for all in-person attendees. Advance registration is required for virtual participation. To register, participants should click here. The necessary login information will be sent to registrants via email 24 hours prior to the program. For any problems with registration or to register by phone, call the Historic Geneva office at 315-789-5151. Registrations must be complete before 5:00 p.m. on November 2, the day before the program.
