They Came to Work: The Early Polish Immigrants of West Utica

January 16 @ 11:30 am

Poles began to arrive in earnest in Utica in the 1880s. Their numbers grew throughout the next decades, capped only by the onset of World War I. This virtual talk by Patricia Bury Yocum looks at why the immigrants came, what they found, and where they worked. In putting down roots and raising families largely in West Utica, they created a distinct Polish presence and long legacy still extant.

This program is free and open to all. Advanced registration is required and can be completed on www.oneidacountyhistory.org/programs.html. You will receive a link and instruction on how to join this online event after registration is complete. The event is hosted via Zoom.
