5 A STORIED CROSSROADS: Historian Douglas Fisher will lecture on the colorful intersection of local music, art and roadways at one of Victor’s most popular four corners: Main Street Fishers and Route 96. His presentation, “400 Years of Music, Art & Roadways at Victor’s Cole & Parks,” will be hosted by the Town of Victor Historic Advisory Committee on Thursday, March 1, 7 p.m. at Victor Town Hall, 85 E. Main St. Fisher, an attorney and former Victor town supervisor, will share a number of interesting themes in local history. Fisher will talk about how Route 96 and the Thruway evolved and impacted settlement and commercial activity in Victor; why a European explorer visited Fishers 400 years ago and never left; and how a French army came to Victor through the Cole & Parks Café site in 1687, targeting Ganondagan and battling with the Seneca in a ravine just off Route 96. Admission: Free.
