We are building a new site to better serve our community.

The new site is on its way but here is some information that is needed right now.

Arts and Crafts Festival

“Share Your Memories” at the Grandparents Tea

The Manlius Historical Society will be hosting a “Grandparents Tea” on Sunday, September 20, 2015 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. on the grounds of the Cheney House Research Center, 109 Pleasant Street, in Manlius.

Grandparents and their grandchildren, or special family friends or other relatives will have an opportunity to learn about their shared history through answering questions in a “Memory Book”. Fayetteville Manlius history teacher Kent Jeffrey will act as MC, and Jeff the Magician will be on site to provide magical entertainment.

During the afternoon’s festivities, guests will be able to enjoy tea and refreshments provided by Brooklea Bakery of Fayetteville, visit the Cheney House and explore the Manlius Museum.

The event is $10.00 per family. It will be held rain or shine. Reservations are required.

Please contact the Historical Society at or call 315-682-6660 to make a reservation or for more information.
