Dennis Bielewicz, local author, speaks at the Ontario Historical Society’s Annual Dinner Meeting

The Town of Ontario Historical Society’s annual dish-to-pass dinner meeting was held on May 16th at the Brick Church, 7200 Ontario Center Rd., Ontario, NY at 6 pm. The night's program was given by Dennis Bielewicz, local author of “Heroes in The Attic-the Untold Story of Two Civil War Soldiers” at 7 pm.

In a secret room of an abandoned house, the author, Dennis P. Bielewicz, uncovered the documents that led to research and a retelling of the complete military service of H. Seymour Hall and Benjamin Coffin. From Genesee College in Lima, NY to Company G of the 27th Regiment New York Volunteer Infantry, Hall, Coffin and other soldiers in their company train for war and fight at First Bull Run and over twenty more battles from May 1861 to May 1863. Compelling in scope, the story of Hall and Coffin defines the heroism of common men against the backdrop of history.

Following the program was the annual meeting. At the meeting new officers to the board of directors were elected for the year.

Museum hours: June 2 to October 7, Sat. & Sun. 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm. Closed July 4th and Labor Day weekend.
