As part of Livingston County’s Bicentennial, a historical marker will be unveiled at the former County Home and Poorhouse Cemetery in Geneseo. The dedication ceremony, organized by the County Historian, will be held on Wednesday, June 30th at 3:00 PM at the Livingston County complex on Millennium Drive in Geneseo.
The dedication ceremony will include reading the names of over 320 people buried in the Poorhouse Cemetery. The identification of the people in numbered or unmarked graves will be shared for the first time with the public.
The marker was funded through the William Pomeroy Foundation New York State Historic Marker Grant Program that commemorates historic people, places, things or events within the time frame of 1740-1921.
The public is invited to attend this outdoor event. For more information on this event and future Bicentennial events, please contact the County Historian at 585-243-7955.
