98 Years Since the Sun Went Out- Sponsored by Max Pies Furniture
Come to the Holland Land Office Museum and see a snapshot of Genesee County and Batavia in the 1920s’ through our upcoming exhibit, “98 Years Since the Sun Went Out.” The display will be from November 2023 to April 2024. Experience what living in Genesee County in 1920s’ was like and the commotion around January 24, 1925, the last time we witnessed the total solar eclipse in our area. Go back in time and see what people wore, what our community looked like, where people shopped and worked, their home lives, and how they saw and reacted to the eclipse.
A revamp of the exhibit will occur in January which will open on February 9th , 2024, which will include even more artifacts and a greater experience of what 1920s’ Genesee County and Batavia looked and felt like.
