The Cortland County Historical Society operates from the 1882 Italianate home of inventor and
real estate developer
The museum portion of the complex features a well designed permanent
display, â€œAt Home: Cortland County Interior Spaces, 1825-1900.â€?nbsp; as well as
a room dedicated to military artifacts from local participants in the War of
1812 through the Vietnam Conflict
In 1976, a climate-controlled wing was
constructed to house the Kellogg Memorial Research Center, a vast collection of information on the county's population, businesses and
industry in organized clipping files, along with indexed federal and NYS census
records, vital statistics, cemetery data and surname files.
Moderate fees cover guided museum tours and the libraryâ€™s assisted
research for those not members of the Society.
The organization is a nonprofit corporation supported by
membership and contributions. Memberships are open to the public.
The Cortland County Historical Society would like to thank the
Foundation for their very generous support. They have funded many
improvements to our facility, including a new door, shelving and a grant to repair our boiler.
They also funded the popular Bicentennial Stamp Cancellation Project and
more. We are truly grateful.
