We, the Board and members of the Fort Brewerton Historical Society, are saddened by the death of our Vice President Eddie Einhart. He was a man with so much knowledge about so many things and we will miss him terribly. Eddie enjoyed playing Elet Milton during our Haunted Halloween events and St Nicholas during our Colonial Christmas Open Houses. He not only put on the costumes and wigs, he researched and told their stories to all who listened. Eddie had been a Scout Master and used that experience to guide several Eagle Scout projects on the grounds surrounding our museum. He was very proud of the Einhart Star, a garden he designed and planted around the flag pole in the center of Fort Brewerton’s earth works. Of all of Eddie's accomplishments he was most proud of his three children. Eddie is survived by his wife Grace; his children Christopher, Hallie, and Erika. Peace be with you Eddie and your family.
