The Avon Preservation and Historical Society became a not-for-profit organization in 1983. Our mission is to interpret and preserve the history of our local area by providing diverse historic resources for the public through free educational programs and our fine museum.

We are proud to be located in the historic Avon Opera Block,  hosting a treasure trove of artifacts in our Museum at 23 Genesee Street, and a selection of books and commemorative gifts. We host several free programs throughout the year. 

Please join us by becoming a member and follow us on Facebook!
