Norwich City Historian

On March 12,1914, Governor Martin H. Glynn signed the bill incorporating Norwich as a city. Fred McMullen became its first mayor.

The work of the city historian and records management revolves around the past. A collection of past memorabilia is kept at the Hale Street location. However, due to personnel shortages, there will be no scheduled hours until the City can complete a transition to future arrangements. It is hoped that the types of archival material listed below can be made available for research at that time.

  • Mayor’s office
  • Council members
  • Minutes of city council meetings
  • Politics/elections
  • Various departments
  • Historical events
  • Significant people
  • Transportation-N.Y.O.&W.RR and Chenango Canal
  • Corporations/businesses
  • Folklore
  • Obituaries
  • Crime/punishment
  • Architecture
  • Genealogy
  • Photos/slides/CD’s/tapes
  • Records (permanent and active)
  • Education (schools)
