Historic food program returns for school break

The Geneva Historical Society will offer a hearthside-cooking program for children during spring break.

They’ll learn about how people cooked before electric and gas ovens were invented, what kind of food they ate and where it came from, and will prepare some dishes of the 19th century.

“History Mysteries: Finding Out About Food,” will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, April 20 at Rose Hill Mansion on Route 96A, south of Geneva.

The program is geared toward children 6 to 12 years old and costs $2 per child for members and $3 per child for non-members.

Reservations are required by Tuesday, April 18 by calling the Geneva Historical Society at (315) 789-5151.
