Our Mission

The SCHS was established to preserve the record of human endeavor in this part of New York's southern Tier for the enjoyment and edifications of its people and those generations yet to come.

The Society's mission is to collect, catalog, and preserve the historical artifacts, archival items, books and other published material relating to the history of Steuben County. The Society seeks to make its collections relevant to the public through exhibits, lectures, school class visitations, special educational events and publications.
