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.
