Cortland County Historical Society (CCHS) is home to the James Suggett House Museum and the Kellogg Memorial Research Center. The Museum showcases the stories of more than two centuries of Cortland County life. Built in 1882, this large, historic home anchored the Suggett family property, which also included the area now known as Suggett Park. Some eighty years later, James’s great-grandson – Chester Birdlebough – bequeathed the home to CCHS, finally giving the museum a space of its own after residing first in the Franklin Hatch Library on Church Street and then in the County Court House.
First chartered by New York state in 1947, the CCHS operates two cultural repositories, the Chemung Valley History Museum and the Booth Library and Archives. We are the largest general history museum in our region and accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
The Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society is located in the historic train station of Lake Placid. Our mission is to preserve and present our community’s history in ways that are educational and enriching. We do this by offering three exhibition spaces in our museum which tells the story of an atypical Adirondack village and its roots.
