Abandoned In Chenango County

The public is invited to a presentation by Henry J. Drexler, “Abandoned in Chenango County”, to be given at 1 PM on February 10th, 2024 at the Oxford Memorial Library.  While local roads, schools, bridges, taverns and many other things have been abandoned, Drexler will focus on abandoned barns and farms, illustrated with his photographs.  He will also display his recent painting of an abandoned barn that once stood on Hopkins-Crandall Road in Plymouth.  His research indicates we have been losing family farms in Chenango County for over a hundred years and the loss has affected our local culture and economy.

This program is made possible with public funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Earlville Opera House
