Did you know…

  • With free admission, the Geneva History Museum features a children’s discovery room, gift shop, and local history exhibits?
  • Our collection consists of approximately 5,700 three-dimensional objects, 3,400 costumes and textiles, 1,000 cubic feet of archival materials and over 20,000 photographs?
  • Our archival materials are available to the public through the Research Room at the Geneva History Museum and online through New York Heritage?
  • Our website includes a weekly blog, recordings of programs, past exhibits, an online gift shop, and events calendar?
  • By partnering with community organizations (including the Geneva Public Library and Hobart and William Smith Colleges) and participating in community events (like the Famers Market) we are sharing share Geneva’s stories with the broadest possible audience?

Whether it’s through collections, exhibits, programs, or online content, we tell Geneva’s stories. It takes $1,500 a day to operate Historic Geneva and maintain our three properties. To keep sharing Geneva’s stories – your stories – we rely on the support from community members like you.

Will you please support Historic Geneva by making a gift to our Fall Support Campaign?

Any individual, business, or organization who contributes to a support campaign is considered a member of Historic Geneva. Along with multiple fixed levels of support, there are options to choose your own donation amount or to give monthly.
