Support Fort Ontario’s Bid For National Designation

OSWEGO – National Honor Society members from the Oswego City School District attended Oswego County Government Day during the May legislature meeting to voice local support for an historic landmark.

Students throughout the district wrote more than 300 letters of support for Fort Ontario’s bid for national designation.

The five members at hand read aloud some of the outstanding letters highlighting the fort’s significant role in our country’s history and the importance of it receiving a national designation.
