Date Event
To Be Rescheduled We apologize for the cancellation of the September 7th, 2017 "Special Fund Raiser in the Ballroom of the Miner's Cabin." Work on the ballroom was not completed in time for the event. We will reschedule for next year.
  We will hold our Annual Dinner and Elections Meeting at the VFW at 6:00 PM. The menu will consist of beef on weck and a buffet of salads and dishes. The cost will be $12.00, which will include dessert, beverages and gratuity. We will be making calls for reservations. Following elections, we have an interesting program.

Recently we discovered that Simeon Robbins, who discovered gold in the Yukon and returned to Franklinville to build the Miner's Cabin, gave a personal interview. Come and hear about his adventures in his own words.


  The Maple Festival is one of the most important fundraisers for the Ischua Valley Historical Society. This year we have made several changes that we believe may be beneficial to our organization. We will still sell cheese curds, baked goods, and books (especially mysteries, historical and romance novels).

We decided not to do the old treasures sale at the Maple Festival this year. We have had problems with finding enough space for all the treasures. We will sell our treasures at the Route 16 Sale.

This year at the Maple Festival we would like to do a basket raffle. We are hoping that the businesses, membership and community will help us by donating baskets. If you can donate a basket, please call Cheryl at (716) 676-4018. Tickets will be sold for each basket, and you can buy tickets for multiple baskets. Winning tickets will be chosen at 1:00 PM on Sunday, April 29th. You need not be present since all winners will be called. If you are unable to donate a basket please remember that we need baked goods and books. You may bring baskets, baked goods, and books to the school on Friday at 5:00 PM.
  We will learn about "The 1894 Tragedy at the Franklinville Fair" at 7:00 PM in the Miner's Cabin.
  Join us for our Annual Flag Day event in Cadiz. It is a fun day for all. Details for this event will be available here and in our local newspapers.
  We will have our Annual Picnic at 6:00 PM at the Miner's Cabin. Please bring your table setting and a dish to pass.
