HLOM Guest Speaker Series: Michael McBride, “John Joseph ‘Exile’ McBride”

Tuesday, March 12, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Holland Land Office Museum is proud to announce the next edition of our Guest Speaker Series on Tuesday, March 12th at 7 pm. We welcome Michael McBride, who will share his personal journey as he unravels his research into the fascinating story of his great uncle: internationally known Irish freedom fighter and Buffalo’s forgotten human rights crusade, John Joseph “Exile” McBride. “Exile” McBride left Ireland joining the Fenian Movement, but eventually came to dine with Presidents and Prime Ministers, and was even present at the Holland Land Office dedication in 1894. Admission is $5 or $3 for museum members. Please contact the museum at 585-343-4727 or hollandlandoffice@gmail.com.
“This project is a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by GO ART!”
