Lately, in Corinna...
November 20, 2002
|In yesterday's photo you may
have noticed the portraits in the hallway of the Stewart Library
Building. This photograph of Levi Merrick Stewart hangs near the
front door. Levi was born in 1827 and died in 1910. He built the
library building in 1898 at a cost of $65,000. The building was
presented to the town of Corinna in memory of his parents, Rev.
David and Eliza Stewart. The library first opened for
circulation in 1898 with 3,268 volumes, most donated by Mr.
Stewart. John Howard Winchester, a nephew of Levi Stewart, was
the first librarian.
