We are open! Please remember to wear a mask and maintain a safe social distance between you and others while visiting. We currently have exhibits up for display, which can be viewed under the “Exhibits” tab at the top of the site. These exhibits will remain on display until the Tioga County Railroads exhibit begins this summer. As always, stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
Welcome to the
Tioga County Historical Society
Preserving our stories for over 100 years

Founded in 1914, the Tioga County Historical Society is an educational organization which collects, preserves, and interprets the history of Tioga County, New York. The Society facilitates access to our collections and programs to promote education for members, residents of Tioga County, and the general public, including students, scholars, tourists and visitors. TCHS is comprised of a museum, research library, genealogical archive, and a historic carriage house. We are located in the historic Village of Owego, NY on the banks of the Susquehanna River.
