The Cortland County Historical Society operates from the 1882 Italianate home of inventor and real estate developer James Suggett.

The museum portion of the complex features a well designed permanent display, “At Home: Cortland County Interior Spaces, 1825-1900.�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 library’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 Cortland Community 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.
