Greece Historical Society & Museum

The Greece Historical Society is a 501 (c ) 3 not-for-profit organization, organized in 1969 and chartered in 1975 by the NYS Board of Regents. Our purpose is to collect, research and preserve the history of the town of Greece, NY and the local area. We share it with the community through • Free public programs • Exhibits and special events at our Greece Museum • Tours for local school students, scouts • Publications, such as "Eight Miles along the Shore", a book on town history and other local history publications • Newspaper articles • Programs for libraries, senior residences, organizations • A monthly society newsletter the "Corinthian" Our all volunteer Society owns and maintains our historic center and museum on land leased from the Town of Greece. We are NOT part of the Town of Greece and receive no financial support from local government. Support comes from fundraisers, membership dues, sales in our museum gift shop and donations. Our annual budget is approx. $22,000.00. Our most pressing need currently is replacing lost revenue from cancelled fundraising events due to COVID. Our new goals for this year include • new publications, • upgrading our computer equipment to allow for hands-on activities in our museum (especially for children), • expanded programs with living history interpreters.

We focus on: Arts and Culture, Education
