Yates history center opens Mennonite exhibit

PENN YAN--The L. Caroline Underwood Museum in Penn Yan has opened a new exhibit, May 3, "How Should We Live? The Old Groffdale Conference of Mennonites in Yates County."
Mennonites initially moved to Penn Yan and Yates County some 45 years ago from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Historians estimate the Mennonite population in Yates County is now comparable to the number of Mennonites in Lancaster. The Groffdale Conference Mennonite Church is also called Wenger Mennonite.
The Penn Yan museum exhibit includes information about Mennonite religious beliefs and customs. Visitors will see displays showing the typical dress for Mennonite men and women along with a list of Mennonite etiquette do's and don'ts. There is also information about the three pillars of Mennonite life including church, school and family. Additional photos are on page 3.
The Underwood Museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, located at 107 Chapel St., Penn Yan. For more, call 315-536-7318.
