HOLM's Guest Speaker Series - Derrick Maxfield
Derrick Maxfield will be visiting the museum on Thursday August 20th at 7 pm to talk about "Hellmira". The Elmira, NY fort that would come to be known as “Hellmira” among its prisoners began as a Union training post called Camp Rathbun. The fort was turned into a prison camp in 1864 with almost no notice. That was just the beginning... The cost to attend this talk is $3 per person or $2 per museum member.

Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by GO ART!"
