News from Museum
Due to an unforeseen development, there has been a change in the lineup of the Cattaraugus County Museum's "Summer at the Stone House" event series schedule.
Musician Dave Ruch was scheduled to perform a program entitled "Traditional Folk Music of NY, Vol. II" at 7 p.m. this Thursday, July 12. Due to illness, Mr. Ruch has been forced to reschedule this performance. Fortunately, Della Moore has graciously agreed to switch dates and will give her talk on the subject of the African American Center for Cultural Development this Thursday instead.
The Cattaraugus County Museum and Research Library is pleased to announce the opening of it's new exhibit: "Answer the Call! Cattaraugus County Marches to War, 1917-1918." April marked the centennial of the U.S. entry into World War I, and the intention of this exhibit is to mark that anniversary and recognize the more than 2,100 Cattaraugus County men and women who served during that conflict.
The exhibit features uniforms, weapons, documents and personal items from all over Cattaraugus County, and will run through April, 2018.
Due to the number of people who have expressed interest in visiting the museum to see our exhibits, particularly the Randolph Mammoth, but cannot make it during our regular weekday hours, we will be adding some Saturday hours to our schedule this summer.
The museum will be open on the first and third Saturdays during July and August from 10-2.
The museum is located in the Stone House, 9824 Route 16 in Machias. Our regular hours are Monday through Thursday from 9-4. Contact us at 716-353-8200 for any additional information.
