The Big Flats Historical Society elected its first officers in March of 1971. The purpose of the Society is to: Promote an appreciation of our heritage by developing knowledge and understanding of Big Flats history in the minds of all of its inhabitants. Relate the present to the past so that Big Flats citizens may more fully realize the changes taking place about them. Cooperate enthusiastically with other groups and institutions in projects which contribute toward a higher quality community life. Collect and preserve information, documents, and objects of historical significance. Museum Hours Tuesdays 9:00am to 12:00pm or by appointment.
