In addition to honoring Veterans and those who lost their lives in service to our country, this ceremony also recognizes the sacrifices made by former residents of the Swift River Valley so that the Quabbin Reservoir could be built.

WILLARD ASYLUM SUITCASES - Jon Crispin
Pelham photographer Jon Crispin unites art and history with images of suitcases with belongings left by patients who passed away at the Willard Asylum from 1910 to 1960. Locked in the attic of the Willard New York Psychiatric Center, the suitcases are a time capsule offering insights into the lives of unique and sometimes forgotten individuals who lived there. Jon has also done photographic studies of abandoned New York State prisons and asylums.
