The Oneonta History Center at 183 Main Street reopens to the public on Friday July 10 at 12:00 noon. The History Center had been closed for almost four months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Staff and trustees of the Greater Oneonta Historical Society have developed a Safety Plan to help ensure everyone's health upon reopening. Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 15 persons at a time. Masks and social distancing will be required. There will be regular cleaning and disinfecting of high-contact surfaces.

Executive Director Bob Brzozowski states that "Visitors may view the History Center's local history displays and exhibits, purchase items from the gift shop, request help with local history questions, make donations, but for the time being, there will be no meetings or events held there."

The History Center's hours are Tuesdays through Fridays 12:00 noon to 4:00 PM and Saturdays 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For more information, contact (607) 432-0960 or
