Our intention is not to lecture about history but to have you experience it, and what makes Your History Place most engaging are the popular exhibits we display. Local volunteers, town historians, organizations, and community members help to bring you a piece of history on a local perspective. Our 5,000square foot museum area has multiple exhibits running concurrently. Events are open to the general public and the cost is $2.00. Members and children are free. Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Closed Saturday and Sunday. The society is accessible to the physically challenged.

The Oneida County Historical Society is pleased to announce the opening of three new exhibits! All three exhibits are now on display in the society's main gallery! These exhibits were curated by summer interns Erin Burke (Colgate University), Ben Schrantz (SUNY Fredonia), and Katelyn Broat (Proctor High). Each exhibit features a unique look at a different aspect of our regional history. Come explore the past and learn something new to share with your friends!
