Museum Week 2018
We participated in Museum Week 2018.
For 7 days we shared unique perspectives found in and outside of the 1890 House. Each day had a different theme and hashtag. Check out our posts below. To see more posts like these check out our social media feeds. #1890House
Charles and Frederic were just 11 and 7 when they moved into their newly built home at 37 Tompkins St. The boys were close to their cousin Jere, who lived just a few houses down.
We recently rediscovered the signatures of Fred and Jere, hidden away in a trapdoor off of the library. Check out our latest WickWired video, at the link below, to learn more about the secret spaces in the 1890 House. #kidsMW #MuseumWeek
Support Cortland's Landmark Building
The impressive collection found throughout the 1890 House Museum offer visitors the opportunity to step back in time to 19th century Cortland. The unique history within our walls tells the stories of the Wickwire family, their servants, and the factory workers who toiled in Wickwire Wire Mills Factory.
We strive to educate and inspire every visitor through diverse programming and exhibitions. With your help, we will preserve this Cortland County landmark for present and future generations.
