Our New Postcard Collection! In September 2016 we welcomed noted photographer Richard Walker to photograph our Museum collection and we can't wait to share them. This summer's postcard collection features 11 of these images featuring a variety of our Museum holdings. Great for sending or framing, bring home a bit of our Museum history today!

Spring 2016 the library selected 10 images from our archives and created postcards that are now available for purchase at the circulation desk. Each image captures a place or person/s integral to the story of Cazenovia- people and places who've made this the town we cherish. Click the image to learn more about the history of Cazenovia.
