Unveiling of New Historic Marker Honoring Mossell

The Lift Up Lockport Committee is honored and excited to announce a new addition to the historic markers of the City of Lockport. The entire community is invited to the unveiling of the new Pomeroy sign, recognizing the contributions of Aaron Mossell and his son, Charles. The unveiling ceremony will take place Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 11 a.m. in the Josephine Carveth Packet Park, near the Exchange Street Bridge.

The purpose of the Lift Up Lockport Committee is to recognize historical Lockport citizens for their contributions to the greater Lockport Community. Formed in 2016, Lift Up Lockport has worked diligently to promote the civic contributions of Aaron Mossell and his family to raise awareness of his historic role in advancing the cause of educational equality in Lockport.

The William G. Pomeroy Foundation Historic Roadside Marker Program enables the foundation to play a vital role in helping communities preserve their local history. Ancestors of William Pomeroy settled in Cambria before the War of 1812.

Lift Up Lockport would like to thank Mayor Dave Wohleben and former Mayor Anne McCaffery for their incredible cooperation and support in this historic endeavor. Join the committee next Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. as we unveil the new sign and celebrate another reason to be proud of the rich history of our wonderful community.
