Historic Homes of Ogdensburg

Many of Ogdensburg's old homes still remain. I created this movie to showcase the rich architecture in the city. The photos you see came from a souvenir book printed in the late 19th century with some additional photos taken by me. #ogdensburghistory

Ogdensburg Rocks

For the past couple of weeks a craze has been sweeping Ogdensburg. A Facebook page called Ogdensburg Rocks began with the premise of citizens decorating and hiding rocks throughout the city. The community both young and old has responded. Channel 7 News even did a story about it. The group has over 3,700 members. Pictures are posted showing rocks being painted and rocks being discovered and hidden again. To honor the community spirit, I decided to decorate a rock myself. Admittedly, I am NOT an artist, but I thought it might be fun if whomever found the #ogdensburghistory rock hid it again at a historic spot in the city. I'm excited to see what happens! #ogdensburgrocks
