History Center seeks Hall of Fame, award nominations


The Oneida County History Center seeks nominations for the 2020 Historical Hall of Fame and Living Legends Awards.

The campaign strives to honor outstanding members of the community, past and present, for their service as leaders, pioneers, and advocates, and for their efforts in furthering the region’s industries, culture, and educational opportunities. Inductees are honored at an annual awards banquet held each fall and through a permanent display in the History Center’s gallery.

Past inductees achieved prominence that reflects credit upon our community, made substantial contributions that improved the quality of life in Oneida County, or enhanced the cultural value and social fabric of the region.
