Mary Jemison: A Program on Her Life
(7:30 PM - 9:00 PM)
- Link: Baker's Bridge Historical Association Webpage
Join the Baker’s Bridge Historical Association of Alfred Station for its next program on Monday, April 15. Speakers Bill Heaney and Kay Bennett will present a program on Mary Jemison.
Jemison’s legacy and history are fascinating and worth knowing. Kidnapped at age 15 by the Seneca Indians during the French and Indian War, Mary was eventually adopted and accepted by the Native Americans as one of their own; she became known as the "White Woman of the Genesee." Her story and longhouse are on prominent display at Letchworth State Park where she is buried.
The meeting, held at the Association’s Meeting House on Hamilton Hill Road, begins at 7:30 p.m. with a short business meeting preceding the program. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served afterward.
