Three Geneva women have loaned artifacts from their home countries for a small Latino/a Heritage display at the Geneva Historical Society, 543 S. Main St. Rosario Millington hails from Bolivia, Xochitl Palacios was born in Mexico, and Libby Doperoy is from Puerto Rico. The display highlights some of the cultural symbols held dear to the women and others in their community. The objects will be on display through the end of the year.
The Geneva Historical Society is interested in continuing to document Latino/a heritage in Geneva. Information including, but not limited to, personal stories of coming to Geneva, family traditions, recipes for traditional foods prepared in connection with family events and holidays, photos, and objects like clothing, artwork, handcrafts, hobbies, and other objects that reflect personal or cultural identity are sought. Please call John Marks at 789-5151 with information or artifacts to share.
The Geneva Historical Society Museum is located in the Prouty-Chew House and is open from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free.
