Ella Dimock's - Ilion History Volumes/Chapters Index

Search the Ella Dimock - Ilion History Volumes Files - This link will open in a new browser tab and takes you directly to the fultonhistory.com search page.

In 2019, a grant was awarded to the Ilion Public Library to digitize four volumes of material that was created, in the 1950s. The material was compiled by former Ilion historian and high school teacher, Ella Dimock. These documents are housed in the Ilion Library Historical Room. There are four volumes in the collection. You can browse by volume. There are 9 web pages with links to pdf files that span the four volumes. The link to the start of the collection is Illion NY History.

(**** note the misspelling of Ilion, with two L's instead of one L, because that is how the folders and files were named on fultonhistory.com)
