The Town of Newfane Historical Society collects, preserves and interprets the history of our community, sharing our heritage through education, exhibits and special events. We maintain two historical locations: The Van Horn Mansion and Country Village, along with an extensive collection of archives and artifacts.
We are a non-profit organization relying entirely on the generosity of supporters. Consider becoming a member of the society, thereby adding your voice to our efforts, as we convey the story of our residents to future generations.
As a third-generation member of the Newfane Historical Society, I'm proud to be part of a family who has passions for both giving back to the community and helping preserve local history. It is my privelege to continue this volunteering legacy with a group that has become invaluable to the community, and works tirelessly at any challenges placed in front of it. I look forward to assisting in any way possible as we continue to grow and develop our organization together, while also striving to maintain the long-lasting traditions carved out by our many members over the years.
- Victoria Banks, President 2018 & 2019
