Welcome to The Hobart Historical SocietyHobart Historical Association

The Hobart Historical Society is headquartered in its restored building on Cornell Avenue, Hobart, New York. The building is formerly the home of the St. Andrews Masonic Lodge. This building is now used to operate and manage the Hobart Historical Society's community projects, keep records of village history, and provide the community with a Historical Society Center. We are honored and proud to have such a beautiful piece of our village's rich history in our caring hands. We are also happy to share this space with the entire community.
