Visiting the Museum

The museum is located in an historical building - namely the carriage barn of the Wilcox House, an early hotel at the four corners of Honeoye Falls. The museum has an excellent display of Indian artifacts dating from the Lomoka Period (2500 BC) through the Iroquois Period when the Seneca inhabited this area. Pioneer days of Honeoye Falls through the present day are well documented depicting the lifestyles of the times since 1791.
