We will be celebrating a great season at Heritage Square Museum by recognizing the many people who make this possible. Plus, Pat Smith will be with us, giving us insight into her husband’s experience as a prisoner of war during WWII. Pat is a long-time resident of Ontario, a supporter of Heritage Square, a civil war reenactor, and a history buff. Feel free to invite your friends who might have an interest in this topic.

Heritage Square Museum is the only location in Wayne County that lets its visitors experience a traditional 19th-century settlement. On thirteen acres, the museum houses ten buildings with household and industrial items used by the earlier settlers of Ontario. Heritage Square Museum is owned and operated by the Town of Ontario Historical & Landmark Preservation Society. The society is chartered by the New York State Education Department and is an IRS determined nonprofit organization.
