Hobart Historical Society-Full Steam Ahead

We have mentioned that we are working on new websites and strategies for two Historical Societies in the area.

The Hobart Historical Society is full steam ahead and we should have a completed site up soon!

The new site is going to showcase not only the re-painting and restoration of their building at 57 Cornell Avenue, but also will have genealogy information for the area cemeteries, really great photo galleries and articles from way back when, plus the new “Historic Half Hours” that are presented each month.

The Hobart Historical Society wants to come together with the community and continue to preserve it’s past and preserve the present since today’s present is tomorrow’s history!

This is a great honor for us to be involved in projects that are so close to our heart (yes, we are history geeks), and the hearts of the individuals who tirelessly maintain this important historical archives.

    HOBART, NY, April 22, 2011 –The Hobart Historical Society (HHS) is pleased to announce a newly-designed website that will help the organization to protect the treasures of the area’s past for the future. They invite you to visit (and comment on) http://www.hobarthistoricalsociety.org.

    With the assistance of CMS Internet Solutions of Bovina, the site has become a hub for Hobart’s history. Says Sue Marshall, Co-Owner of CMS, “We are honored to have been given the opportunity to work with the great folks of the Hobart Historical Society. Our entire area is steeped in rich history. We think it is fantastic that Historical Societies are leveraging the power of the internet to share all the great historical information they have collected with anyone that is interested. Our hope is that more people in the area learn about this website and the Hobart Historical Society and decide to support the wonderful work that all our area Historical Societies do to preserve our legacy.”

    Genealogy buffs will be happy to learn that searchable records from Locust Hill Cemetery in Hobart have been included in the site, with the assistance of Executive Secretary Bill DeSilva. Future plans are to include records for Valley View Cemetery on Rose’s Brook Road and South Kortright Cemetery in the hamlet of South Kortright.

    Because today’s happenings are tomorrow’s history, please contact HHS with any Hobart area events to be included on the site. For more information, on the Society, you can contact them at hhs@stny.rr.com or visit their new website.
