Genesee Country Village & Museum

A beautifully-run museum of local 19th-century architecture and living in Wheatland, New York. With over 600 acres, 68 restored buildings, an art gallery, and multiple events throughout the year, it is not only a major tourist attraction for the Finger Lakes region, but it is also a living treasure of American pioneer and colonial culture.
