The Skaneateles Historical Society has an extensive collection of books, ledgers, photos, newspapers, articles, genealogical information, and other materials in our archives that relate to the history of Skaneateles. We have a knowledgeable staff to help answer questions and help with research, including a town and a village historian. There are also links to other helpful people and organizations.

There is always a researcher present on Fridays from 1-4 p.m. when we’re open. Email queries will be sent to the appropriate person. Or, you can set up an appointment for a different time by calling, emailing, or sending us a letter.
