Historic Geneva Opens Exhibit Showing Geneva's Past and Present
Geneva, N.Y.: Each year, Historic Geneva plans a My Geneva exhibit based on community participation. This year's exhibit, My Geneva is… Then and Now, opens at the Geneva History Museum on Saturday, October 1. The exhibit features images from the Historic Geneva collection paired with similar images taken this year.
The Historic Geneva photo collection includes many 19th-century views of places in the city and town which have changed significantly over the years. The collection lacked similar late 20th- and 21st-century images, so community photographers helped provide them. They took 21st-century photos to match the 19th-century views of Geneva and the exhibit was developed to showcase the changes the photographs revealed.
The exhibit will be on display at the museum through December 29, 2022.
The Geneva History Museum is located in the Prouty-Chew House at 543 South Main Street, Geneva, NY. Hours through October are Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Closed Mondays after November 1. Parking is available on the street or in the lot at Trinity Episcopal Church.
Historic Geneva, formerly the Geneva Historical Society, tells the stories of Geneva, New York at the Geneva History Museum, Rose Hill Mansion, and Johnston House, and online at historicgeneva.org.
