COVID-19 UDPATES:

While the Cortland County Historical Society looks forward to returning to work on site, out of concern for everyone’s safety and the physical limitations of our facilities, the James Suggett House Museum and the Kellogg Memorial Research Center will remain closed to members, friends, and visitors. 

We will offer distance research (free to members) only. Our priority when we reopen is to respond to the growing backlog of research requests, in the order in which they were received.  Please email your research requests to info@cortlandhistory.org.

We will continue to assess and revise our Reopening Plan over the next several months. We miss you and we look forward to the day when we can welcome you in person at CCHS.


Founded in 1925, the Cortland County Historical Society collects, preserves, and interprets artifacts and documents representative of Cortland County's history.
