History of the Mohawk Historical Society
In early May of 1993 local history buffs, Kenneth Ankney and Kim Mohr, decided to form a historical society. The initiative caught hold quickly and membership soared to nearly fifty before their first meeting on June 17. The name “Mohawk Historical Society” was adopted. The physical boundaries were that of the Mohawk School system. This area includes the towns, villages and hamlets of Sycamore, McCutchenville,
Melmore, Smithville, Berwick, Mexico, Deunquat, Benton, Tymochtee, Belle Vernon, and Plankton.
