OHA in the News – 2020

OHA doesn’t only collect and preserve history, we make it too. Much of what OHA does is news worthy and, in addition, our staff is often called upon to provide context to stories about events, buildings, people, and more. Below is what we’ve contributed in 2019, from our regular articles in the Post Standard, CNY Business Journal, and CNY The Goodlife to adding value to reporters’ stories and reports on our own events.
