New York Folklore

Water/Ways will be in Aurora-on-Cayuga for just a little over one week before traveling to Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village! 🌊

In Aurora-on-Cayuga, the Aurora Masonic Center, the Village of Aurora Historical Society, and Long Library at Wells College partnered to host the Water/Ways exhibition and share their unique Cayuga Lake water stories. This lake, heart of the Cayuga Nation of the Haudenosaunee, has provided resources to local peoples for centuries (Aurora was once the Cayuga orchards of “Peachtown”).

The Erie Canal brought Aurora’s wool, grain, and fruit to national and international markets. As elsewhere in the Finger Lakes, farming is an economic driver, and water quality is an ongoing concern.

Designed for small-town museums, libraries and cultural organizations, "Water/Ways" serves as a community meeting place to convene conversations about water's impact on American culture. Throughout the duration of the exhibit, the three presenting institutions—the Aurora Historical Society, Aurora Masonic Center and Wells College—have presented a variety of talks, public programs and other educational initiatives to raise people's understanding about what water means culturally, socially and spiritually in their own community.
