The museum is located at 10465 Main Street, Clarence, NY 14031. We are currently closed for a restoration project. Work will begin soon and continue through the fall season.
The Clarence History Museum is proud to showcase Greatbatch's original red barn, carefully reassembled to look as it did in the early 1960's. The exhibit includes his original work bench, a small pot bellied stove, as well as the doctor's bag Mr. Greatbatch would take with him into the operating room. The museum also houses critical Greatbatch instruments such as "the calorimeter" and his early modern pacemakers.
Coming in 2020 - Gleason Fillmore virtual exhibit!
On February 12, 2009, Continental Flight 3407 crashed into a home on Long Street in Clarence Center, killing all 50 passengers and a resident of the home. Words cannot express how this single event has forever altered the lives of families, friends and the Clarence community. Here at the Clarence Historical Society, we stand with the families, we honor the victims and we remember all whose lives were affected by this tragedy.
