Genesee Country Village & Museum was founded in 1966 with the goal of preserving the architecture of the Genesee Valley region in a recreated historic village, providing context for the telling of New York State and 19th-century American history.
The museum now covers 600 acres and includes the historic village, the John L. Wehle Gallery and the Genesee Country Nature Center, all of which provide interactive programs, fascinating exhibits and special events to help you live history.
Peter Wisbey has been curator of the historic village collections of Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford, New York, for 12 years. He holds a Master’s Degree in History Museum Studies from SUNY Oneonta/Cooperstown Graduate Program and a Master’s Degree in Early American Culture from the University of Delaware/Winterthur Program in American Material Culture.
