LeRoy Heritage Museum Inc.

The first meeting of LeRoy Heritage Museum, Inc. was held on May 19, 2001. A group of local citizens, who were both interested in local history and concerned about how that history should be preserved, began to formulate the idea of creating a museum in LeRoy. The museum began collecting artifacts, furniture, memorabilia, written records, genealogy, photographs, and much more, to be included in the museum. The museum has stepped in and saved local artifacts from being lost forever. Many people have donated items for the museum.
