About The Event
"Reflections from the Centerpiece of Gallupville” will center around a newly donated item of furniture that now finds itself back within the walls of the Gallupville House after an absence of more than 100 years. The Cornwell Hall Tree, recently donated to the Gallupville House Association by the Michael Cornwell family is directly tied to the original owners of the House – the Snyder and Schell families.
The Gallupville House, now with its Hall Tree intact, remains a centerpiece of the hamlet of Gallupville and the non-profit Gallupville House Association will start the evening off with a presentation of one of the Chester Zimmer Local History Interviews. This will be followed by a discussion about Gallupville in the late 1800s. We will explore some interesting events and examples of daily life in Gallupville, as gleaned from historic newspapers in the area, that took place when the Hall Tree still resided in the Gallupville House during the 1880s to the 1910s.
The Gallupville House Association invites all to help us celebrate the Cornwell family’s donation of this historic piece of furniture and explore more local history on May 20 at 7:00 PM. A reception will follow the program.
