The Niagara County Federation of Historical Societies invites the public to attend its annual congress at the Sanborn Farm Museum, 2660 Saunders Settlement Road in Sanborn. The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. April 29. It will feature three speakers plus lunch catered by Hoover Dairy. The cost is $30.

Anneliese Meck, manager of community lifeways at Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford, will present a program called “Getting Dressed in the 1880s.”

Pete Ames, Town of Niagara historian, will give a virtual tour of the historic Witmer Cemetery, which he has been rehabilitating since 2019 and hopes to make a place where people can learn about its past and residents.

Linda Hunter, “The Quilt Detective,” is an American Quilters Society-certified quilt appraiser. She will try to identify the age, pattern, materials used, and other points of interest of quilts attendees bring to the program.

Advance registration is required, and can be made by calling the History Center at 716-434-7433.
