Step into our rich arts, culture and history that helped shape Yates County. If you’re looking to expand your knowledge on our local history, the Yates County History Center, one of the oldest historical society’s in New York State located downtown Penn Yan or the Dundee Area Historical Society.

Art and culture lovers will relish in the visual bounty and structures that reside here. There are various opportunities to engage with art and history. We recommend taking a workshop at Sunny Point on Keuka Lake, The Art Center of Yates County seasonal location, or taking a visit to the Folk Art Guild and East Hill Gallery in Middlesex.

Many buildings here alone are a work of art and have much historic significance. The Garret Memorial Chapel, a registered historical landmark, is located on Bluff Point overlooking Keuka Lake. The chapel is open to the public Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to explore inside, but you can admire and take photos of the grounds outdoors any day that the grounds are open.
