Lewis County Resource Center














The Lewis County Historical Society serves a historic area situated between the Adirondack Mountains and the Tug Hill Plateau in New York State. Our mission is to acquire and maintain historical artifacts and to make them available to the public for viewing. We also organize community outreach programs and assist with genealogy and local history research.

Lewis County "Home for the Holidays"

We welcome new members and volunteers. We have many events and projects throughout the year. Become a member, make a donation, or contact us if you are interested in volunteer opportunities for yourself or your group.

Our gift shop offers a wide variety of commemorative ornaments, books, and other unique items.

And, even though we're rooted in history, we're working hard to make a mark in the 21st century. Beside our website we also have a Facebook page. Follow us there!

We are currently on our Fall schedule until November 30th and are open Tuesday through Friday 10 am – 4 pm. The research center is open these times as well. Those requiring a visit to the Research Center on the weekend please contact Jerry Perrin at 942-4891 and he will try to accommodate your request.
