The Historical Society Museum is the oldest building in town. The Historical Society Museum was erected in 1849 as a German evangelical church, serving a rural congregation until 1967.
The building and cemetery (dating back to 1847) were acquired by the Town of Tonawanda in 1970, and opened as a museum in our nation's bicentennial year. The Town of Tonawanda annually appoints a town historian to oversee and maintain the rich history of the town. John Percy has been the town historian since 1973 and has provided a vital link to the Historical Society. On January 2, 2015, the town appointed Ed Adamczyk as the new Town Historian.
The Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization and owns and manages the artifacts of the museum.
