Founded in 1947 and headquartered in Canton, the association`s mission is to preserve and interpret the history of St. Lawrence County. The organization`s museum is housed in a fine 1830s house that was once owned by Silas Wright, prominent statesman, attorney, U.S. Congressman, and New York State Governor. The house is furnished to reflect the 19th century lifestyle of the Wright family, and the attached barn features exhibits and an archive that chronicle the county`s development and growth.
