Granger Historical Marker Unveiling
November 13th, 2012 3:30 PM - 4 PM
The public is invited to join Forest Lawn and The William G. Pomeroy Foundation for the unveiling of a historic dedicatory marker near the original homestead of Seneca Indian Agent, Judge, Postmaster and Collector of Port, Erastus Granger, at Forest Lawn. The marker was generously donated by The William G. Pomeroy Foundation.
The Granger homestead played an important role during the War of 1812, and the original 80 acres of Forest Lawn was purchased from the Granger family in 1849.
The event will be held, rain or shine, in Section 20, near the original site of the Granger homestead. Enter via the Main Street gates and stay to your right, along Main Street. The site is located on the left, next to the bridge over Scajaquada Creek (where it comes above ground), directly across the road from the Erie County Veterans Section.
