KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAUPDATE: Because of a forecast for snow and ice on March 3, this presentation has been rescheduled for April 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Bob Williams has perhaps the most extensive collection of photos of Verona’s past. Over the past year, the historian has commissioned a series of paintings based on those photos and he will unveil them and talk about the history of the scenes in them in a presentation at the Verona Public Library on Tuesday, March 3.

The paintings were commissioned by Williams from noted artists Mike Jaroszko of Montgomery, N.Y. and Robert Allan Lahm of East Durham, N.Y. Each painting was carefully and painstakingly created from historical photographs with strong attention to detail. Included will be paintings of the Verona Schoolhouse, the original building of the Newark City Home where Verona High School now stands, the grist mill at Verona Lake, and a small grouping of the old homesteads around Verona including the Williams Homestead on Claremont Avenue, pictured above. Williams will explain the history of each building in detail.

The presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Library’s meeting room.
