History impacts every age group, and Johnsburg Historical Society hopes to instill an awareness of that local history in residents of all ages from youth to the elderly. To that end, JHS has made some recent appearances at Johnsburg Central School.

 

At Johnsburg’s graduation ceremony June 25, 2016, the History Award sponsored by Johnsburg Historical Society was presented to a deserving graduate who has excelled in Social Studies and History. The $250 scholarship was presented by Principal Nadeen Kipp to graduating senior Sara Rose Pierson.

 

In early June, eight members of Johnsburg Historical  Society visited JCS to present a gift to each of the 16 graduating seniors. Individually wrapped and inscribed copies of the book, Echoes in These Mountains, were presented. The book by Glenn Pearsall describes local sites of historical significance in the Town of Johnsburg. In his remarks to the seniors, JHS President Delbert Chambers noted the connection between a community and its history. 

 

The intricately detailed display, “JCS Sports Teams and Athletes, 1950 – Present”, created by Johnsburg Historical Society, graced a first floor corridor of JCS from April to summer 2016.

 

Johnsburg Historical Society is inspired by the students’ respect for the dramatic history of their town.
