On Monday, February 12 at 12 p.m. noon, Broome County Historian Gerry Smith will discuss Binghatmon’s history at the Phelps Mansion Museum at 191 Court Street in Binghamton.
As part of Binghamton’s 150th anniversary as a city, take a step back in time with Smith as he weaves unique stories of our past, and ties them to our present-our own version of Six Degrees of Separation. Smith is on the faculty at SUNY Broome, is past president of the Association of Public Historians of NYS, and is the author of several books: “On the Seamy Side of the Street” and “That Happened Here? More Saints and Sinners from Broome County’s History” (both with co-author George Basler). Smith has a weekly column in the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin.
