A Day to Remember
On July 7, 2013, we dedicated the new Patriots' Room with music and memories.
Artful gift: John Williams, left, a Knox resident and an artist who writes the Old Men of the Mountain column for The Enterprise, donates a pastel portrait of Nancy Frueh, Paula Shafer, and Dan Driscoll making music on the Saddlemire Homestead porch as Driscoll accepts the picture for the Knox Historical Society. The picture is on display in the recently completed Patriots’ Room, along with photographs, uniforms, and information about Knox veterans. Driscoll conceived the idea that evolved into the Patriots’ Room at the society’s Saddlemire Homestead.
Honoring patriots: Nancy Frueh, left, Knox Historical Society president, and Dan Driscoll, who founded the Hellebergh Fife and Drum Corps, led the dedication of the Patriots’ Room at the Knox Historical Society’s Saddlemire Homestead on July 7. Behind them is an honor roll of World War II veterans from Knox assembled by Ray Hand. Frueh constructed a memorial to Bill Frueh, her late reenactor/musician husband and the society’s past vice president. Several local families donated or lent for scanning pictures of Knox veterans for display in the Patriots’ Room at the museum. If you
have pictures or information on Knox veterans, please contact John Elberfeld, treasurer for the society,
at JElberfeld@aol.com or 872-2082.
