, New York City | History

"Taking Care of Business" Exhibit Opening: A history of business, industry, and commerce in Tioga County, featuring all of the methods of advertising used over the last 150 years.  Continues through September 30. The Tioga County Historical Society was incorporated on July 8, 1914 when a certificate of incorporation was issued by the New York Secretary of State. The Society’s purpose was to collect and preserve articles and items relating to the history of Tioga County and to put them on exhibit.  An article in the Owego Gazette for July 9, 1914 stated that when plans for the Coburn Free Library were made, a provision was made for a room to be used by the Historical Society.  The article also stated: “In the distant future the Society may be in a condition to erect a handsome building of its own”.  The Society’s collections were housed in the library until 1952 when they were moved into the former residence of Miss Minnie B. Wade at 314 Front St. that was bequeathed to the Historical Society. Source: http://tiogahistory.org Image Source: https://web.facebook.com/Tioga-County-Historical-Society-326059436520/?_rdr
