Family Programs

Oswego Heirloom Project

Do you have a treasured family heirloom with its own story to tell? Artifacts tell their own tales while having the power to capture a moment in time. Let your story become a chapter in Oswego’s history! Schedule a time to meet with Little White School Museum assistant Amy Dahn to share your unique history and story. Email Amy at adahn@littlewhiteschoolmuseum.org to coordinate a time to visit the museum with your heirloom to be photographed and to tell its tale. Additional details will be sent via email once an appointment has been scheduled.
