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!

Convention Day Committee Community Service Award Reception

The Convention Day Committee invites everyone to join with them, at the Seneca Falls Historical Society, for the presentation of the 2019 Community Service Award Reception.

Please join us in celebrating with this year’s recipients, Fred, and Denise Capozzi, who have tirelessly continued to help, wherever or whenever it is needed in the community.

The reception will be held on July 19, 2019, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at 55 Cayuga Street, Seneca Falls, New York.

As part of its annual weekend commemorating the nation’s first women’s rights convention, the Convention Days, Inc. traditionally begins the celebrations with the Community Award reception on the Friday evening of the weekend at the Historical Society.

“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…
