The presentation on March 26 at the WCA was so well attended that there was standing room only! Mike Potter presented wonderful photos that dated from late the 1800s to the early 1900s. The photos highlight Little Falls streets and transportation during that time period.

What we do

The Little Falls Historical Society Museum works to preserve and highlight the community’s history. Members of the society work hard to collect, archive, digitize and otherwise preserve Little Falls’ story.

Main St. c1862 Civil War Period

This photo is one of many that can be found in David Krutz’s book, Distant Drums, Herkimer County in the War of the Rebellion. The book offers a unique insight into the Civil War period including stories and photos of the area. Distant Drums can be purchased at the Little Falls Historical Society Museum. It’s an amazing, one-of-a kind look into Little Falls and the rest of Herkimer County during this important time in our history.

David Krutz was born, raised, and still resides in Little Falls, New York. He is a graduate of Utica College of Syracuse University, and has been a life-long student of the Civil War. This is his first literary effort.
