Forgotten No More: Monument for the Forgotten Exhibit Opening
The Museum of disABILITY History will be holding a grand opening event for its Monument for the Forgotten exhibit on Saturday, July 12, at 11 a.m. at 3826 Main Street, Buffalo. The exhibit pays homage to the individuals who died in area institutions and were buried in desolate, nameless and unmarked graves. These individuals were long forgotten as time passed, but they are forgotten no more due to cemetery restoration efforts of area volunteers and businesses.
Following the exhibit opening program, a panel discussion entitled “Institutional Cemetery Restoration – Why we Restore,” will be held.
