About the Omena Historical Society

The Omena Historical Society is dedicated to helping preserve the history of our area for visitors, residents and future generations. Our quest to do that began informally in the mid-1980s with a group of friends discussing the history of the area. From those discussions evolved a formal effort to preserve the history of Omena and in1994 the Omena Historical Society was formed.

Now, more than two decades later, OHS is headquartered in the historic, centuries-old Putnam-Cloud Tower House Museum located in the heart of the village.
