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.
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. Besides this new home on the web, we also have a Facebook page. Follow us here!
We are currently on winter schedule and open Tuesday and Wednesday 10-4.
We'd like to thank all of our patrons and sponsors for a successful
2013 Black River Concert Series!
16 historical Lewis County videos are now available on http://www.youtube.com/user/lewishistory13367!
