Holland Purchase Historical Society: Board of Directors

The Holland Purchase Historical Society was established in 1894 to preserve the past and pioneer the future of the living history of Genesee County.

The Holland Purchase Historical Society is run by a membership-approved Board of Directors.  The Holland Purchase Historical Society maintains and preserves all of the artifacts within the Holland Land Office Museum in Batavia, New York, organizes cultural, historical, educational, and entertaining programming, and promotes the importance of local history.

We also encourage our membership to consider becoming a Board Member, joining one of our many active committees, or volunteering to support the Holland Land Office Museum.
