Fall Festival Civil War Event
The Library is pleased to collaborate with the Rush Town Historian’s Office for a special Civil War Veteran’s Tour at Pine Hill Cemetery on September 20th, from 4-5:00 PM, at the close of the Fall Festival. Approximately 100 men from Rush served in the Civil War, and 29 are known to be buried in Pine Hill Cemetery. Others are buried in some of the smaller cemeteries around town. This walking tour will visit about a dozen gravesites, some of which are in the old part of the cemetery; please wear sturdy shoes and meet us at the North Entrance on Rt. 251.
18th Century Windsor Chair Presentation
Saturday, September 27th from 10:00 AM-Noon in the William Udicious Pavilion. We welcome Rush resident and furniture maker, Dick Knapp, for a discussion on how this form of furniture was made and its impact on Early America. See several examples of Windsor chairs, including one that is over 200 years old! Marvel at the hand tools used to create these chairs and witness a first-hand demonstration of the original techniques used. Please register in advance. Cider and donuts will be served.
