The Kenan Arts Council will host a business lunch at 11:30 a.m. Jan. 13 at the Kenan Center’s Taylor Theater Meeting Room, 433 Locust Street. Bring your own lunch; coffee, tea, and cold drinks will be available.

The 12:15 p.m. program will feature Bree and Rich Woodbridge, owners of McCollum Orchards, presenting the history of McCollum Orchards, one of Lockport’s best-known historic landmarks.

McCollum Orchards is a 100-acre family farm nestled below the Niagara Escarpment in Lockport. The farm was established in 1827 by Rich’s great-great-great-grandfather Hiram McCollum and his brother Joel, one of Lockport’s founding fathers. It has been passed down through generations ever since.

Rich grew up in Princeton, New Jersey and spent his childhood summers at McCollum Orchards with his grandmother, Josie. Bree was raised on a citrus ranch in Phoenix, Arizona. They both have Anthropology degrees, from Kenyon College and Emory University, respectively. Rich worked for a stint as an archeologist in Honduras. Bree double-majored in Russian and spent a year in Irkutsk, Siberia, where her favorite times were in the summer garden. Jobs coordinating U.S. State Department exchange programs took her from Washington D.C. to San Francisco.

The free program will be followed be dessert, coffee or tea, and conversation. The public is invited to join us as we learn more about some very special local history.
