Who is Martha Hamblin?
Martha Hamblin, a research scientist at Cornell University and longtime arts enthusiast, learned about CSMA’s historic hall and its urgent need for restoration during the spring of 2014. Sadly, she had just been diagnosed with a terminal disease and wanted to make a legacy gift that positively impacted the beloved community she had called home since 1981. As an avid fiddle player, choir singer and folk music dancer, Martha connected with CSMA’s mission and likewise envisioned a space for people of all ages and backgrounds to congregate and connect over a shared love for the arts. It has been our honor to have been the recipients of her generosity, which has been instrumental in reviving this unique gathering hub for generations to come.
Although Martha is unfortunately no longer with us, her joyful spirit lives on in Martha Hamblin Hall.
