On January 22, 2014 the Geneva Historical Society sold Balmanno Cottage (583 South Main Street, Geneva) to Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Blanchard Bartlett Walker bequeathed her house and the vast majority of her household furnishings to the Historical Society upon her death in 1997. It was her intent to establish her late husband’s collection of 18th- and 19th-century American furniture and decorative arts as a memorial to him. These objects became the William Walker Memorial Collection. Since 1997, the collection and other household furnishings have been displayed at Balmanno Cottage, the couple’s former home.
