The Herkimer County Historical Society has started a new project to help keep you connected during the coronavirus pandemic.

Caryl says, "I'm learning a lot about local history while researching a different topic every day, and the topics are endless." She has made over 25 puzzles and feels it's a great way to stay connected while doing something fun.
