February, 11 - Camillus Cutlery
Presentation by Greg Cobb
Greg became interested in knives as a youngster when he saw a display in his local hardware store. When the Camillus Cutlery closed, he became an avid collector and most likely has the largest assembly of Camillus Cutlery in the United States. He will unfold the story of the Cutlery from its beginnings through its role in World War I and World War II until it's closing. Enjoy early pictures and part of his collection.
March 18 - Split Rock Explosion
Presentation by Rish Miller & John Hrynyk
For over 30 years Rich Miller and John Hrynyk have researched the history and mystery of the 1918 Split Rock explosion that rattled windows in the "Valley" and Syracuse. Join us for a most informative and complete story about the factories which played a major role in the victory of World War I.
