Museum

The Honeoye Falls – Town of Mendon Historical Society Museum is located at 1 Harry Allen Park in the Village of Honeoye Falls, right off of the Village Green. With the exception of holiday weekends*, it is open every Sunday from 2pm–4pm. Our phone number: (585) 624-5660.

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.

The museum hosts a variety of impressive collections that illustrate the story of our town and village. Collections on display include, among other things:

  • Memorabilia from local retailers of the past.
  • Toys & dolls
  • Native American artifacts
  • Civil war artifacts
  • Period garments
  • Local railroad artifacts from the Lehigh Valley and New York Central
  • Farming and household displays
  • Yearbooks
  • Rotating displays covering local industries
