Allegany Heritage Days

The Historical Association Board Members and Trustees have made a necessary decision to cease having Heritage Days. Our group is getting older, and without newer, younger members to carry it forward, now is a good time to stop. We held it for 32 years – a good stretch – and watched it change over the years from being in the Town Hall Park and along Main Street to the Heritage Center to just being at the Heritage Center. Our attendance dwindled each year, and while we still made money on it, our profit dwindled also. I want to thank everyone who has worked so hard over the years to make Heritage Days the success it always was. We had fun, made friends, but always slept very well when it was over. This year we will do the street sheet, listing events for Alumni Weekend, and we will have the Heritage Center open on Saturday, August 5th for alumni and others to stop in and see our exhibits and the Allegany Central School class pictures.

Mayor Pearl is in the process of looking for volunteers to serve on a committee to reestablish the Allegany Heritage Days Events. Those interested are asked to contact the Village Clerks Office at (716) 373-1460
