Medal Breakfast

It takes the legacy of many hands to build a community. Since 1945, the Onondaga Historical Association Medal Award has recognized distinguished contributions to the cause of preserving and interpreting Onondaga County history.

The OHA Medal is the highest honor that we can bestow upon an individual or organization for contributions made to the cause of preserving and interpreting our heritage. Since OHA is the only general comprehensive history organization in this community, one might also consider this medal the highest tribute that can be awarded on behalf of the entire Onondaga County community to those who ensure history remains a vital part of our future.

The 2023 Medal honorees are Christine B. Lozner, William P. Burrows, and Sedgwick Farm Neighborhood Association. 

The 2023 OHA Medal Breakfast Ceremony took place on May 25th at the Oncenter Nicholas J. Pirro Convention Center. Pictures from the 2023 OHA Medal event can be found here!
