Have fun while supporting the Herkimer County Historical Society and Museum
Your support for the Herkimer County Historical Society goes a long way.
The amount of small detail in this building that almost no one would ever notice unless it’s pointed out is simply amazing. We can use your help to bring the Suiter Museum back to glory! Whether it is a donation of time, skill, materials, or money, we appreciate every little bit.
About the Museum
The Suiter Museum building was built in 1884 and is an exemplary example of the Queen Anne style. A legacy of Dr. A. Walter Suiter, it was named after Dr. Suiter’s father, Colonel James A. Suiter, who served during the Civil War.
The massive doors which Dr. Suiter ordered for the entrance to his mansion were built of mahogany. The griffin is one of two which grace the ornately carved front doors. The interior architectural elements are fashionable for the 1880’s and include decorative hinges, burl veneer door panels and rectilinear banisters and newel posts with incised decoration.
The Herkimer County Historical Society is well known for its researchers who help with genealogical inquiries as well as others. There is also a library on site in the Eckler Building. Built in 1870, the Eckler building is located at 406 N. Main Street, next door to the Suiter Building. Volunteers and staff at the library provide assistance to visitors conducting their own research.
