The Lewis County Historical Society serves
a historic area situated between the Adirondack Mountains
and the Tug Hill Plateau in New York State. Our mission is
to acquire and maintain historical artifacts and to make
them available to the public for viewing. We also organize
community outreach programs and assist with genealogy and
local history research.
