The Allegany County Ancient Order of Hibernians made a recent donation to the Independence Historical Society (IHS)  at the IHS Headquarter and museum on Main Street in Whitesville, NY.   The Independence Historical Society needs a new heating system to update their very old one and the local Ancient Order of Hibernians Division stepped up to assist the IHS in their efforts to start raising funds for their new heating system.   .

Brian Cannon stated that the IHS has done an awesome job in preserving and uncovering artifacts about Historic Whitesville and the Town of Independence, NY including local Irish history.   The IHS Headquarters is located in the Old Catholic Church at 520 Main Street in Whitesville, NY that was donated to IHS by the Jim and Sandra Fitzpatrick and Family.  

Please visit the IHS Facebook Page at  Anyone wishing to donate to the Independence Historical Society for their new Heating System or visit the IHS Museum can email President Shallee Lauzze at or call Tel # 607-356-3566 in Whitesville, NY for the IHS museum hours of operation
