Wegmans’ paper aisle, March 15, 2020.

We At Stayed Home was created by the Geneva community. In spring 2020, Historic Geneva invited people to share their stories on how the Pandemic was affecting their lives. Through our website, social media accounts, and our print and email newsletters, we requested submissions to the We At Stayed Home project. What might future historians and generations need to understand the COVID-19 Pandemic? All of us have a story to tell about our experiences in this historic time, and this exhibit showcases a few of those experiences (July -September 2021).
