Western Monroe Historical Society

Origins

Fourth Graders interviewing
"Sara Morgan Manning"

A handful of dedicated people organized the Western Monroe Historical Society in 1965. The Morgan-Manning House became its headquarters. The Society's main purpose is to preserve the House and the historical and cultural heritage of this community. Today the society has grown to over 400 members.

Activities

The Society sponsors a variety of programs and activities for the community such as:

  • The old-fashioned Fourth of July Celebration
  • The Peddler's Market in September
  • The Candlelight Christmas Sale for high-quality Christmas decorations and gifts.
  • Christmas Open House for members
  • Monthly programs of local history and other interests

The Society hosts meetings for a number of local organizations including the Quilters, Spinners, Antiques, Preservation, and History Clubs. Join the Society and enjoy the many activities at the Morgan-Manning House. Call 637-3645 for more information.

The Society takes great pride in cooperating with area schools to help enrich their local history curriculum. School children visit the House and its volunteers introduce them to an important part of the history of Brockport and the Victorian era. The extensive collection of local history records at the Morgan-Manning House is available for research, by appointment.

Tours of the Morgan-Manning House, located in Brockport at the corner of Main and South Streets are managed by the Western Monroe Historical Society and are available by appointment. Contact Eunice Chesnut at 637-3645.
