What Happened to Downtown Rome?

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Oneida County History Center

Between 1958 and 1977 the city of Rome underwent an aggressive urban renewal program covering over eighty acres that forever shaped to growth of the city.  Patrick Reynolds, Educator at the Rome Historical Society, will discuss what worked, what didn’t, and why.  This program is an outgrowth of research done during the development of "From Memory to Monument," an exhibition about the reconstruction of Fort Stanwix.This program takes place in the history center's main gallery on Saturday, January 27, starting at 1:00 PM.  The Oneida County History Center, formerly the Oneida County Historical Society, is a private 501(c) (3) not-for-profit educational institution and is dedicated to preserving history and promoting the culture of the Greater Mohawk Valley.
