The Frontenac Historical Society features exhibits covering a variety of topics including the Civil War, Native American history, and recreation on Cayuga Lake. It is housed in a historic Presbyterian church built in 1840. Local artists also display their work here. The land on which the church stands was donated by George Howland, who was a sea captain from New Bedford. *Please note that as of December 2018, the museum's website is not working. Its Facebook page is, however, regularly updated.
