Historic Palmyra is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving the history and architectural heritage of Palmyra, New York.  Once known as the "Queen of Erie Canal towns," Palmyra boasts an astonishing array of architecture, ranging from the early 1800's to Victorian era grandeur. 

Historic Palmyra's mission is “to save the history of Palmyra and vicinity through preservation of architecture, artifacts, and archives; teaching and educating all in that history using its museums and collections.”   This mission is served primarily through the operation of five unique museums, welcoming thousands of visitors each year.
