Founded in 1936, the Rome Historical Society is a non-profit, educational institution chartered by the State of New York. Our mission is to preserve the history of Rome, its people, and the surrounding community of Oneida County via permanent and temporary exhibitions and an established archive.
The Rome Historical Society is a perfect beginning for a local tour encompassing all aspects of the area's history. Our multimedia presentation of "Our Goodly Heritage" will guide visitors through the early ice age to present day Rome. Visitors will be thrilled with the societies collection as they are displayed in both permanent and temporary exhibits. Permanent exhibits feature the Iroquois peoples, the Forts on the Carry, the canals, the diary industry, manufacturing, and early life in Rome. Additional exhibits focus on significant 20th century developments, such as the Rome Turney Radiator Company and Griffiss Air Force Base.
