Since 1919, the Broome County Historical Society has been collecting, preserving and interpreting the history of Broome County, New York
The generosity of our membership helps the Society engage in these areas:
The Historical Society holds nine regular programs each year, all free and open to the public.
Two issues of a newsletter, the Broome County History Bulletin, are published each year. Several major publications have been produced and are available for purchase.
The Society maintains a collection of over 200,000 items covering our area from pre-history to the present. All items in the collection are preserved consistent with current museum and archival standards.
The BCHS is a major participant in the Local History & Genealogy Center in the Broome County Public Library. A collection of books, manuscripts, photographic images, newspaper clippings, obituaries and an index of names are maintained in the Local History & Genealogy Center.
We provide a research service using only materials located in the Local History & Genealogy Center.
The cost for research is $10.00/hour, plus the cost of copies (.25).
All monies must be paid before the research can be started.
