New Chairman of the Board


The Oneida County Historical Society is pleased to announce its new Chairman of the Board of Trustees, New Hartford native Andrew Weimer. Andy has been affiliated with the society for many years and joined the board in 2013. He replaces longtime Chairman Lou Parrotta, who will remain on the board as Vice Chairman.

Andy graduated from New Hartford High School in 1999 and from Le Moyne College in 2003. He was an academic All-American baseball player at Le Moyne and graduated with several program pitching records. Andy was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays and also spent time with the Cincinnati Reds' organization during his seven year professional career. Andy currently owns a financial services business with Northwestern Mutual, operating offices in New Hartford and Boonville.

Andy is passionate about local history and is proud of his local roots. His 3X great and 2X grandfathers were long-time Utica businessmen and the latter was an alderman. He is eager to strengthen the society's relationship with the community and share its abundant history within the county as well as outside its borders. Andy lives locally with his wife Laura, owner of Laura Lynn's Photography, daughter Ilana, and sons Michael and Joseph.
