HISTORY: 7:30 PM The Skaneateles Historical Society November

Program – Kihm Winship will talk about not-so-famous but nevertheless fascinating cottagers

who have graced our lake’s shore, including a Chicago political power who always delivered his

ward, a Confederate private who was captured at Fort Fisher and an officer whose wife carried

messages for Jefferson Davis, an attorney whose daughters were pioneering feminists, a society

woman who was sufficiently down-to-earth to rescue four boys whose boat capsized, a man who

gave away 50 acres on the lake when he couldn’t find a buyer, and a woman who invited guests

to her home but didn’t come downstairs to meet them. He will also talk about a famous cottager

said to live here who actually never did, and reveal the truth about Martin Revson and Dr. Joyce

Brothers. The Museum at The Creamery, 28 Hannum St. www.skaneateleshistoricalsociety.org
