Community Activities & Outreach

Over the past nine years, trustees have presented the John W. Jones history and museum project in talks given to the local Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis Clubs; the Southport and the Chemung County Historical Societies; Elmira College and other schools; adult Sunday school classes; community TV shows; and bus tours at the house and in the cemetery. The story of Mr. Jones’ accomplishments was shared with thousands of students.

Trustees have participated at community events and festivals including the Newtown Civil War weekend, the annual Elmira Juneteenth Celebration, Elmira College's Octagon Fair, Troy PA Fair, and a Southport Historical Society event.

The yield from our Heritage Garden is donated to various local organizations to help those in need.
