Welcome to the Schuyler County Historical Society!  We are located in Montour Falls, Schuyler County, New York, just south of Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake of the Finger Lakes.  The Society maintains three properties within the county and is headquartered at the Brick Tavern Museum, a large brick Federal style building built in 1828 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Our Museum has exhibits relating to Schuyler’s rich history.  It also houses artifacts, books, and documents concerning Schuyler people and events, which makes it a desirable stop for genealogists and researchers.  Museum admission is free but there is a fee for non-members to conduct research.
