Due to the rapidly changing situation regarding COVID, it is with great regret that the museum must temporarily close the Open Hours formerly available on Tuesday from 9:30 - 11:30am. We will continue to regularly assess the situation and, when safe conditions return, we will look forward to re-opening and seeing you and many other visitors. Thank you for your understanding.

Best wishes to you and yours for a safe and healthy holiday season!

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a day to encourage people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. This year's event will be held on Tuesday, December 1st. Please think of the Frontenac Museum as a recipient of your generosity as you do make a difference in preserving the heritage and history of our community.

Donation maybe made vial mail at PO Box 338, Union Springs, NY 13160 or through our website using PayPal or a major credit card. Thank you for considering the Frontenac and for helping us keep history alive!

The Frontenac's entry in the Ward O'Hara Agricultural Museum's Annual Festival of Trees this year is "History Marks the Spot". Our Curating Team chose a few of the interesting historical markers as a way to showcase the history of our area and to encourage folks to visit the marker sites. Plan to stop by the O'Hara Museum and vote for Tree 16 as your favorite.

Come view the tree displays and vote for your favorite tree (#16 of course!) during open hours. Saturday 10am-8-pm, Sunday 11am - 8pm, Weekdays 2pm-8pm.

The trees will be on display until January 31, 2021
