Tree planted in memory of former Penfield historian | Community Spirit
Her life's goal was to preserve the history of Penfield. Now her legacy will be preserved for many generations.
This afternoon, a tree was planted at the Penfield Town Hall in memory of Maude Frank. She was town historian from 1978 until her death in 2004.
Frank's daughter told News 10NBC how her mother always loved collecting things and that tied into her love for the town. Paula Dickson said, "I think it was more than just their love for collecting. But it translated to a way for her to also protect and collect for Penfield."
Frank published several books about Penfield's history and established the "Dayton Corners One-Room School House Museum."
