Brown Bag Talk: The Auburn Immigrant Experience

Jun 30th 2017 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Bring your lunch and learn some history in the Seward House Museum gardens! Throughout his career, William Seward made a name for himself defending the rights of immigrants—often in the face of fierce opposition. Kirsten Wise, Curator of the Cayuga Museum, discusses the legacy of immigration in the making of Auburn. Paying particular attention to late 19th and early 20th century trends, Wise traces how Italian immigrant communities contributed to the richness of “History’s Hometown.”

This event is free and open to the public.
