Susan Wake's Weekend Gallery
"The Signs of Past Times"
We are available to present our program to groups, clubs, historical societies and other venues to tell two amazing stories that began in Western New York. Our program can be accompanied by a slideshow and is suitable for large and small groups of all ages. For more information availability and honorarium, please contact us:
This project is now part of the permanent collection of the Howard Historical Society, Mill Street, Howard, New York. The Museum located off the Howard exit on I-80, is just a stone's throw from the location of The Inn at Howard. The museum is open on Sunday's during the summer months.
Two Historic Signs -
         Two Stories Merge Into One -
                                              Too Good To Miss!
      What started as the grant funded "SIGNS OF PAST TIMES - A Traveling Rural Exhibit" has turned into an exciting program!

     Get ready to travel back in time to the year 1816! We will tell the true story of "The Year There Was No Summer" also known as Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death!"

     The first story dovetails into the next as we tell the tale of Westward Migration of America beginning in Steuben County, New York! The story is full of adventure as we travel with the first two women of European Descent by horseback, wagon, sled, steamboat, mules and on foot over the Rocky Mountains to Oregon Territory.
