August 2018: Grant Submitted; Fundraising Underway

We're glad to report this month that the City of Geneva, on behalf of the Parrott Hall Coalition and with grant-writing support from the Landmark Society of Western New York, has successfully submitted a grant application to the State of New York for stabilization of Parrott Hall.  This was truly a coalition group effort, and numerous coalition members, working closely with the Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, worked many hours to get the application written and submitted on time (July 27, 2018).

FUNDRAISING is most important at this time.  What can our Friends do?  Your engagement is more critical than ever.  If you have been considering a gift to FPH, now is the best time to show that support.  Although FPH has received its federal tax exemption, the certificate has been lost in the mail.  To make a tax deductible gift, send checks made out to the Geneva Historical Society with a memo note stating Friends of Parrott Hall. More details are available at  Also, if you know individuals or organizations who would support our mission, please share contact information with Herb Aldwinckle (
