On November 17, as part of the Holiday Fest, the Harmony Area Historical Society will present its current display of pictures and other items that capture the history of Harmony. The display will be in the HAHS Interpretive Room at the Harmony Visitor Center on Saturday from 10:00-4:00 and Sunday from 2:00-4:00.

The display includes guest registers and pictures of the old Harmony Hotel, which was located where the present Visitor Center is now. There are also numerous pictures of Harmony’s Main Street and private homes that show how many changes have come to Harmony since its inception. A unique article is a large plat map from 1878 that shows which families owned particular sections of land around Harmony. One display case contains pictures and items that capture the history of Niagara Cave, while another case includes pictures of former Harmony businesses, buildings, families and individuals who were part of the Harmony community. There are also many other interesting exhibits--including one on the karst geology of the area--and old photographs. People who come to the display will be served coffee and holiday baking as well.

Set aside some time during Holiday Fest to immerse yourself in the history and memories of Harmony. It’s a great way to learn about Harmony and to discover fascinating facts and figures about its history.
