The Harmony Historical Society is located in Blockville, NY, which is on Route 474 between Ashville and Panama. The society was established in 1972 to serve the community and preserve local history. It serves the Towns of Harmony and North Harmony which originally was called the Town of Harmony.
The Society maintains six buildings at its Open Meadows Road location. They are a one-room schoolhouse, an 1840's furnished farmhouse, a weaving shed, a barn with local artifacts, a storage shed, and a meeting hall. The Society has a library wher people can do geneology work and other research.
During our fall festival this year, we had many inquiries (from members and the general public) about the status of the private property for sale between the school house and the Matson House. Most folks assumed the property would be purchased by the historical society.
Thank you for the great turnout again this year. We're looking forward to next year's event.
We are a destination in the Chautauqua County Bicentennial Passport. Stop by the schoolhouse to have your passport stamped.
