Montezuma Historical SocietyMontezuma Historical Society


The Montezuma Historical Society offers historical programs and resources to enhance people’s understanding of our past, gain perspective on the present, and play an informed role in creating and shaping the future.

The Town of Montezuma first developed along the Seneca River and then grew up along the Erie Canal that flowed through town. Through the Society’s efforts, it is helping to restore the Town’s pride in its’ heritage, preserve our historic buildings, sites, and rich natural resources that centered around the evolution of four stages of New York State Canal history.
