Richardson-Bates House Museum
Founded in 1896, the historical society has preserved and promoted the history of the greater Oswego community for over a century. In 1946, the historical society received a generous gift of a historic 19th century Italian Villa to serve as the permanent headquarters for a public museum. Since that time the society has owned and operated the magnificent Richardson-Bates House Museum. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this distinctive landmark offers a unique glimpse into the opulent lifestyle of a prominent Oswego family, as well as a museum dedicated to interpreting the vast history of the people, places and events of Oswego County through exhibits and educational programs.
