FCHMS was incorporated in 1903 by a group of prominent citizens and reorganized in 1963. Our museum and headquarters are located at The House of History, an 1864 Tuscan-style brick home one block from Main Street in Malone, NY. The Schryer Center for Historical & Genealogical Research is located in the renovated Carriage House on said premises. The Society's collections, records and daily operations moved to The House of History in 1973 when it was purchased from the Kirk Family.
