The Cooper's Falls Grist Mill and Blast Furnace, the Vasco P Abbott House in Gouverneur, and the Crane Normal Institute, Potsdam, are the latest buildings to be reproduced in miniature by the St Lawrence County Historical Association. The buildings are part of a hand-painted, limited edition series which are produced in conjunction with artisans Glenn and Marty Pierce to recognize architecturally significant structures in St Lawrence County. The cost for a set of all three buildings is $30, while individual buildings are $12 each, with all proceeds benefiting the Historical Association. To order any of these buildings, or to inquire about other buildings in the series, please contact the St Lawrence County Historical Association, at 3 East Main Street, Canton, NY 13617, phone 315-386-8133 or email.

In the summer of 1876, just as the presidential campaign was getting under way, Cornelia McFalls of Gouverneur published a poem that was set to music by William F Sudds, also of Gouverneur, and soon became a popular campaign song. Hear the song at SLCHA's Quarterly page.
SLCHA was the Spotlight article in New England Historic Genealogical Society's (NEHGS) The Weekly Genealogiste-newsletter for June 17. NEHGS is the premier genealogical association for New England, and many St Lawrence County families came here from New England when this was the frontier. You can sign up for The Weekly Genealogist or join NEHGS at their website.
SLCHA has recently revised its sponsorship levels. Please consider us in your giving plans.
