Other Bits

DID YOU KNOW...Francis Zavier Jenny was born in Germany in 1848; learned the trade of marble cutter; came to America in 1869 opening a marble shop in Boonville in 1871. He married Anna Schreck and they had six children. He entered into a partnership with Joseph J. Nelbach on Columbia Street. The firm Jenny & Nelbach became a leading manufacturer of statuary, family vaults and art monuments throughout Central New York. The statue of Baron von Steuben on the Memorial Parkway and the General Herkimer Monument near Little Falls were erected by the Company. Also, many cemetery monuments in the Utica area and others within a radius of 500 miles contain notable examples of their work. This is another example of the German contribution to our area.

UMC WI-FI CAFÉ: Join us at the Utica Maennerchor at the Wi-Fi Café. Play a game of shuffleboard, watch your favorite team play ball on our big screens, or spend the evening catching up on your email correspondence, Facebook, Twitter or other accounts. We're convenient, especially if your local library doesn't have evening hours. Wings and other finger foods are available at the bar.
