Biographical Info

The Oswego County Historical Society’s collection of nearly 25,000 artifacts, documents, and photographs traces the significant history of the area, and is located in the Richardson-Bates House Museum. The house was built between 1867 and 1880 and is a fine example of Tuscan Villa Victorian architecture. The upstairs of the house is dedicated to the preservation of local history. The downstairs is preserved as the Richardson family knew it, with 95 percent of the original furnishings of the period. Maxwell Richardson was an attorney, real estate broker, and two-term mayor of Oswego. His house reflects his wealth and position as a civic leader. The museum is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is charged.
