A new exhibit has opened at the Cattaraugus County Museum! It is called "An Olio", meaning a miscellaneous mixture or collection, because it features a number of widely varied items.
Many of these items, though very interesting, are one-of-a-kind and rarely fit into larger exhibits. Because of this, we have decided to create an exhibit solely dedicated to these unusual items!
The Cattaraugus County Museum is pleased to announce that it will be hosting part of the 2nd Annual Keith Blackmon Memorial Dance Weekend.
Created by Howard Blumenthal, this weekend of activities commemorates the life and music of the late... square dance caller Keith Blackmon.
On Saturday October 26 from 1-5, the museum will host a dancing workshop and discussion on the life of Mr. Blackmon, as well as a display of memorabilia. If you're a square dance enthusiast, or simply interested in local history, please join us!
There is a new exhibit open at the Cattaraugus County Museum and Research Center. Titled “War is Cruelty; A Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in its Third Year”, the exhibit will run through October 2013.
This exhibit, intended to compliment our summer long series of Civil War related programming, is made possible in large part due to generous loans from private collectors within Cattaraugus County. We hope to see you!
