FULTON – Rosemary Nesbitt visited the Fulton Rotary Club recently to give an update on the activities at the H. Lee White Museum and the acquisition of the Oswego Harbor lighthouse.

Rosemary was the founder and first director of the H. Lee White Museum. The second and present director is Mercedes Niess, who introduced Rosemary.

In her enlightening presentation, Rosemary covered the reasons that museums exist, and how they should tell the story of the era of history they portray in a truthful and interesting manner.

The H. Lee White Museum exhibits the early history of Central New York in a very interesting manner. It is located on the dock at the north end of West First Street in Oswego. The museum is open daily from 10 – 5. The museum has many programs for youth, as well as, adults.
