Allegany County origins to be next topic at AU’s Bergren Forum

Craig Braack, Allegany County historian, will present "How Our Area County and Town Lines Came To Be" at Alfred University’s next Bergren Forum, Thursday, Nov. 3 at 12:10 p.m. in AU’s Powell Campus Center, Nevins Theater.

During the forum, Braack will talk about the first settlers of Allegany and Steuben counties. He will describe how these early residents lived in various towns and counties during their lifetimes since county and town borderlines were often drawn and redrawn.

The Bergren Forum, sponsored by the Alfred University Division of Human Studies, meets Thursdays during each academic semester at the University. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be available.
