Little Falls Historical Society & Museum
"Where History Lives"
On Sunday, August 16, a ceremony was held at Church Street Cemetery fulfilling the late Edwin Vogt’s dream to acknowledge those citizens buried in a segregated part of the cemetery. Enea Family Funeral Homes, Burdick Enea Memorials, the Edwin Vogt Memorial Fund and the Little Falls Historical Society joined to make this monument possible. Speakers included Father Thomas Vail, Reverend Robert Williams of Utica AME Zion Church, Louis Baum, Mayor Robert Peters, David Krutz and Patty Sklarz. Dr. Oscar Stivala played “Taps” at the end of a very inspirational and moving ceremony.
The article below explains why the monument and dedication took place.
Programs are free and open to the public.
