Historical Society Information
There has always been a strong interest in the history of the Nunda Area. In 1983 local residents organized the current Historical Society, stating as their mission:
"The Society is devoted exclusively to educating present and future generations concerning the cultural, economic, social, political and technical development of the area of western New York in and around the Town and Village of Nunda."
The new Society soon set forth the following objectives
1. To publish items related to the history of the Town of Nunda, such as the historical booklet "Early Times". This publication consists of articles from the Nunda News written by Marjorie Frost, Town and Village Historian.
2. To establish and maintain a collection of materials/objects needing preservation to carry out the mission of the Society. Emphasis is placed on discovering, collecting, preserving, interpreting and exhibiting these items.
3. To provide members and the general public with the opportunity to attend, at no cost, regular programs of historic interest.
4. To acquire and maintain a suitable building to serve as headquarters for the Society and a permanent home for the collection noted in item 2.
5. To work with other societies, civic groups, and individuals to identify, preserve and restore historic structures or properties in and around the Town and Village of Nunda.
6. To publish a Society Newsletter for distribution to the membership.
Over the last twenty years the Society has, through the efforts of its Officers, Committees, and membership, made great strides in meeting these objectives. Most notably is their acquisition and development of the Society's Museum Building on Portage Road. This facility houses the growing collection of historical items and information, holds Society workrooms and offices, and hosts Society meetings and presentation.
