Historic Geneva to offer behind- the-scenes tours this Fall

  • / Updated:

Historic Geneva will offer Behind-the-Scenes tours of the Geneva History Museum this fall on October 8 and November 5 at 11 a.m.

Built in 1829, the museum building at 543 South Main Street housed multiple families over the decades before becoming the home of Historic Geneva in 1960. Archivist Becky Chapin will show how the former residential spaces have been adapted to store artifacts, house archives, and function as office and public spaces.

The tour runs at 11 a.m. each day. The cost is $5 per person, and reservations are required.

Please be advised that there are stairs to climb and some confined spaces included in the tour. Because of these constraints, space on the tour is limited. 

To make a reservation, call 315-789-5151.

The Geneva History Museum is owned and operated by Historic Geneva, formerly the Geneva Historical Society. Historic Geneva tells the stories of Geneva, New York at the Geneva History Museum, Rose Hill Mansion, and Johnston House, and online at
