Leigh Rehner Jones is the featured speaker at the May 16, 2013 Ninth Period History Class in the Palmyra Village Hall at 7:00 PM. A move to the Finger Lakes Region with her appointment to a position at Ganondagan, caused Ms. Jones' long term interest in the technology of cobblestone construction and its unique beauty to develop into a research project and ultimately the purchase of a cobblestone home in Hopewell.. The discovery of an inscribed marker in that home led to It Happened in Hopewell: Jacob Isenhour's Cobblestone Legacy, the story of the house and the people who lived there.

Ms. Jones received her B.A. in Art History from Cornell University and was graduated from the Cooperstown Graduate Program with an M.A. in History Museum Studies. Her career has taken her to Chicago, Michigan, Ithaca, and Maryland. During her time with the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (SHPO), she served as a Museum Educator at Ganondagan in Victor where she worked with G. Peter Jemison, Site Director.

The Ninth Period History Class Series is sponsored by the Village of Palmyra Historic Preservation Commission. The presentation is free and their is ample parking adjacent to the building. Please join us for a delightful evening.
