— Museum update

County Historian Margaret Gibbs reported to the board about the summer lecture series at the Adirondack History Center Museum, which has focused on the flooding of last year.

“This summer, our programs have been mostly related to this theme of flooding and we have had some interesting speakers at our Thursday evening programs talking about this subject,” Gibbs said. “Aug. 30 will be the last of our lecture series. The museum will have a reception on that day beginning at 5 p.m. Martha Gallagher will have a concert at 6 p.m. followed by a reenactment of testimony after the 1956 flood.”

Gibbs added that they have a new video about the flooding that will be part of the Raging Rivers exhibit.
