Schenck Family Program


Mar 20, 2019
06:00 PM until 07:30 PM


Tara Mancini presents history of the Schenck Family, who traversed hills and streams in two covered wagons in order to start a new life near Buffalo in 1821. They brought with them traditions dating back to the middle ages that feel modern to listeners. Through this program with firsthand accounts and resources, we will get a sense of immigration and migration in Buffalo from 1820 to 1900. We will also discover a bit of German architecture and what life was like on the Schenck Family’s estate. Members free; museum admission.
