Oliver House Museum- 200 Main Street
The public is invited to join in the celebration of the 70th birthday of the Oliver House Museum on Saturday, July 21st at 11am at the museum. A short ceremony will be held honoring Miss Carrie Oliver's gift to the village of Penn Yan and celebrating the museum's 70 year history including remarks from Penn Yan's Mayor, Leigh MacKerchar.
In 1948, the Yates County Genealogical and Historical Society opened exhibits on the second floor of the Oliver House. Other community agencies used other rooms in the Oliver home. Today, the entire 15 room Italianate home is filled with exhibits telling the fascinating stories of Yates County's history.
Following the ceremony, an ice cream social and happy Birthday fund drive will kick off to benefit the Yates County History Center. Donations can be made via www.yatespast.org. For more information call 536-7318
