Welcome to Our Home

Founded in 1896, the Seneca Falls Historical Society is an invaluable resource for local and regional history, life, and culture. Our extraordinary collections tell the story of Seneca Falls through thousands of rare and unique documents, archival records, artifacts, and irreplaceable treasures.

The Seneca Falls Historical Society strives to enhance the understanding of our area’s past and its connection to the present, demonstrating that history is not just a series of events that happened to individuals long ago but is integral to the fabric of our daily lives.

Our 23-room mansion houses our museum, archives, and collections are accessible to anyone with an interest in history. Beyond research, we offer many ways for the public to enjoy our collections including engaging programs, thought-provoking exhibitions, publications, special events, workshops, and more.

We all look forward to your visit!


The Seneca Museum of Waterways and Industry, in cooperation with the Seneca Falls Historical Society, will be offering weekly kits throughout the summer for children in Seneca Falls. Due to COVID-19, we are looking to minimize all risks to our youth. We have decided to create a “Summer Camp in a Box” this year instead of our traditional in-person summer camp. These kits will be available with contactless delivered locally for safety. If these kits cannot be delivered, there will be a contactless local pick-up option for families.  This is a great opportunity to keep kids engaged throughout the summer with history lessons and activities they can do from the comfort of their home.

“Wonderful museum offering guided tours and much local history and artifacts related to the history of the 3-story home. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the history of the home and the town of Seneca Falls.”

See how easy it is to support the Seneca Falls Historical Society…
