Oneonta Collects History

June 1, 2021 - August 28, 2021

The exhibition showcases the objects of three local collections, spanning over a century of Oneonta’s commercial history from the 1870s – 2000s. The first exhibit, “Safes and Savings,” explores objects relating to banking in Oneonta, including savings books, penny banks and safes, and deposit bags. The second, “The Mail We Sent,” spotlights historical envelopes, or “covers,” highlighting Oneonta businesses. The third, “Oneonta Advertising,” includes various advertising objects from Oneonta’s history, including the original “Game of Oneonta” board game.

The History Center also has on display a recently acquired historic “Welcome to Oneonta, City of the Hills” sign, generously donated by GOHS members. The sign will remain on display through the summer.

The History Center is open in June, July, & August, Tuesdays through Fridays, from 12pm to 4pm, and on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.
