Local Artifacts Showcased

At Swart-Wilcox Sunday Series

Above, Len Pudelka, Oneonta, a former history professor at Hartwick, gives the final Sunday Series talk of the season on the lawn on the Swart-Wilcox House  this afternoon. His talk was on the local skirmishes in the surrounding area during the Revolutionary War. At right, Helen Rees, Oneonta holds a stone weight that Natives used for net fishing in the area. The artifact, and others like it, are part of a collection found in the fields around the Swart-Wilcox House in the 1950’s by Emerson Horth.  He later donated the collection to the Swart-Wilcox House museum where it remains on display.

Swart-Wilcox House Celebrates 210th Birthday

Fran Bliven, Linda-Rae Nichols, Linda Reese, Debby Clough, Yolanda Sharpe, Ann Shultz and Joan Kollgaard sing ‘Happy Birthday’ in front of the Swart Wilcox House this afternoon where the Friends of the Swart-Wilcox House celebrated the 30th anniversary of the organization and the 210th year the house has stood. Built in 1807, the Swart-Wilcox house Oneonta’s oldest standing structure. It was occupied by the Swart and Wilcox families for 103 years, until it was closed in 1970. The City of Oneonta bought the house in 1976, but it wasn’t until 1987 that four school teachers approached the city about rehabbing the site and turning it into a historic destination. Speakers detailed the history of the house’s occupants and it’s extensive restoration, highlighting the corn crib, wall paper and flooring. At right, Debby Clough, one of the founding members of the organization, and Milly Parish, cut an intricately detailed cake made by Barbara Clark of Otego, to serve to the guests.
