SF Heritage and Tourism Center Hires New Executive Director


The Seneca Falls Heritage and Tourism Center has named a new Executive Director Andrew Olden.

Olden has a master of arts/history from the University of Missouri-Columbia and is currently working on his Ph.D. He has been a research assistant for the executive director of the State Historical Society of Missouri, an instructor and teaching assistant at the University of Missouri-Columbia, and an assistant museum coordinator and archivist at McKendree University in Lebanon, IL.

Olden said he is excited about working with the community and museum leadership. He is looking forward to becoming involved in the community, growing the organization’s programming, and learning from visitors and volunteers.

“I want my leadership to continue to build on the strong history of the museum and continue to build an organization that people want to support and be a part of,” says Olden.

The Center has also added Laura Jacuzzo to its ranks as a Program Assistant/Docent. Jacuzzo’s role is to provide customer service and assist with programs, tours, and events. She has a bachelor’s in writing and history from Houghton College. Her previous experience includes being a substitute teacher aide as well as a library assistant. She also has experience as a docent and education/program coordinator with the Seneca Falls Historical Society.

Jacuzzo states that her work with the historical society prepared her to give tours as well as boost her knowledge of Seneca Falls and the rest of the area. She looks forward to helping the museum enhance and expand its current program offerings.

As the organization readies for the busy summer months, Jacuzzo is already prepping the Music in the Park series and the Summer Camp in the Box.
