“come connect the past with the present”
The mission of Seward House Museum is to interpret the accomplishments and the democratic and social values of William H. and Frances A. Seward and their immediate descendants and to engage a diverse public in connecting the past with the present. The Seward House Museum was founded in 1951 in the will of William Henry Seward III. He left the home to the Fred L. Emerson Foundation located in Auburn, NY. William Henry Seward III intended for the house to become a museum that would honor the legacies of his father and grandfather. The Seward House opened to the public in 1955, and now displays an entirely original collection. The Seward House became a registered National Historic Landmark in 1964. In 2008 the museum established itself as its own independent 501-c3 not for profit becoming a fully independent museum. We invite you to visit Seward House Museum, the historic home of William H. Seward and his family. Our knowledgeable staff is on-hand to provide guided tours, or to help you navigate the many fascinating aspects of this beautifully preserved home. Enjoy masterpieces of American art and special exhibitions in both the historic house and the museum's gardens.
