About the Event
Alasa Farms receives Historic Recognition
William G. Pomeroy Foundation grants a New York State Historic Marker
North Rose, NY, May 2022 - Cracker Box Palace at historic Alasa Farms is excited to announce that they will be receiving a historic Pomeroy Marker sign. The New York State Historic Marker will be unveiled at a special revealing ceremony on May 21 from 10:30a.m. to 12:00p.m. at 6450 Shaker Road, North Rose, NY. The public is invited.
This is a significant step in showcasing the important history that spans centuries in Sodus. Trail Works, Inc. of Wayne County submitted a proposal to the Pomeroy Foundation last year and were delighted to learn that it was approved.
Derek Poole, who was born and raised on the Alasa Farms, and now heads their Historic Committee said, “This is another important step in recognizing the important history and cultural richness of Alasa Farms, both its history before the 20th Century as well as the Alasa Farms and Strong Family history. It’s a true gem not only in the state, but nationally. This dedication helps raise this awareness so we can move forward with appropriate historic renovations to use not only as preservation, but as an educational tool as well, one that provides visitors and our community with a deep sense of cultural awareness that represents over 200 years.”
