“A Story Worth Telling ... A Heritage Worth Preserving”

"The story of Allegany County (N.Y.) is the best kind of story—with a cast of characters any talented writer would struggle to imagine.  Medicine men, dance hall girls, missionaries, and industrialists all have written on the pages of our past.  Their lives and livelihoods have shaped the course of our communities and continue to speak into our future though at times only through a whisper.

1884MapNYSRRThe Allegany County Historical Society is committed to sharing our story with all who wish to reflect on the past and endeavor to bring about a promising future.  You are an important part of our county’s present story and you play a significant role in preserving our past.  Together we can preserve our heritage and share a story worth telling.” –Jeffrey Kirksey
