PHOENIX - At 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 18, Steve McMahon will present “Something’s Up on Downer Street” to the Schroeppel Historical Society, 486 Main St., Phoenix.
It’s the story of how the wave of spiritualism that swept through upstate New York in the late-19th century washed up on the shores of the Seneca River, leaving a lasting impression on one prominent family in the Baldwinsville community.
This is an updated version of a presentation that he delivered two years ago to the Beauchamp Historical Club in Baldwinsville, with additional information relating to the spiritualism movement in Oswego County, and specifically, Phoenix.
McMahon develops and delivers well-researched articles and presentations regarding local history, with a focus on how 19th-century national history influenced the lives of people living in local communities.
There will be free refreshments.
Admission is free, however donations will be accepted.
Wear a mask if unvaccinated.
