New this year

Claude Shannon Exhibit


2016 is the centennial year of celebrating the birth of Gaylord native son Claude Shannon. 

An extensive array of interesting items from the kitchen and parlor of times past are displayed in a special exhibit in the back room.  A step back in time awaits those entering the museum from our parking lot entrance.
Be sure to check out our gift shop located in the front of the museum for local items, history publications, and our annual calendar filled with historic photos of Otsego County.

The Otsego County Historical Museum opened in 1992.

Gordon & Marlene Everett generously provided the Historical Society with the museum building by gift and nominal purchase.

The dream of having a permanent location to display the history of Otsego County has become a reality for future generations to enjoy.
