History Center Naming Opportunities

In this 150th anniversary year of the historic building which is the Greater Oneonta Historical Society's home, we hope to make significant progress on completion of needed construction on the second and third floors of the History Center.

A limited number of naming opportunities are available for many of the rooms that play and will play a significant part in GOHS Preserving the Past for Oneonta's Future. A room will be named in perpetuity in honor of or in memory of an individual, a family, etc.

  • The ballroom will be named for a $75,000 donation.
  • A $50,000 donation will name the first floor exhibit space.
  • A $10,000 donation will name one of the two large collection rooms on the second floor.
  • A $5,000 donation will name the smaller room on the floor dedicated to arts and artifacts.
  • And a $2,500 donation will name the retro restroom on that floor!

GOHS thanks the family of Jack Bresee for a donation to name the exhibit prep room in his memory and to Irene Curley for a donation to name the smaller archival room in memory of John Kevin Curley. Donations are also being accepted for the reading and resource area named in memory of Sally Mullen.

Donations may be made in cash, check, credit card, PayPal (above), and/or stock donation to GOHS' Wells Fargo account. For more information, contact GOHS president Corinne Smith (, fund development chair Bill Pietraface (, or Bob Brzozowski ( Thank you for considering this gift which will contribute to the community for generations to come.
