Welcome to the Chenango County Historical Society! We are a vibrant campus located in the Museum District of downtown Norwich, New York, just steps from dining, shopping, and cultural experiences. Our exhibits explore the history of Chenango County and the Central New York region from pre-history through the present, with a special emphasis on Native American history, industrial history, settlement and migration, transportation, and agriculture.
In addition to our permanent exhibits, the CCHS campus also features a robust gift shop filled with one-of-a-kind gifts, as well as publications on local and regional history that can’t be found elsewhere. The Paperback Exchange is also a function of CCHS, and promotes community literacy through the sale and exchange of used books. If you have never visited CCHS, now is the time!
