Scrapbooking History

As part of the Geneva Historical Society's “History Mysteries” series, a session titled “Scrapbook Secrets” will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27 at the Prouty-Chew House on South Main Street.

Children, age 6 to 12, can learn about 19th century scrapbooks and see some examples in the Society’s collection. In the late 1800s, many people created scrapbooks, photo albums and autograph albums.

Participants will also make scrapbooks for storing their own memories.

The cost is $2 per child for members of the historical society and $3 for others; registration is required by July 23 by calling 789-5151.
