Ann Marie Linnabery, assistant director of the Niagara History Center, will revisit the homes and residents described in “The 1878 History of Niagara County” in her program “Home Sweet Home” at 2 p.m. on Jan. 22 in the Niagara History Center.

Linnabery will explore this treasure-trove of historical information offering a snapshot of life in the last quarter of the 19th century. Interspersed among town histories are sketched images of many prominent Niagara County residents and the homes they occupied at the time.

Using these images, as well as 19th century maps and directories, Linnabery has crisscrossed the county tracking them down to learn which ones still exist. Surprisingly, many of these historic homes are still standing and in remarkably good condition. The program will focus on houses still extant in the towns of Niagara County. She will also give a brief history of each home’s residents.

A future program will highlight houses in the cities of Lockport, Niagara Falls and North Tonawanda.

Donations will be accepted for this History Center event.
