To inspire curiosity and foster learning about 19 th century America through the lens of the William H. Seward family by providing engaging and unique experiences; to preserve, protect and care for the collection; and to sustain the historical grounds.
The Seward house Museum is the historic home of William Henry Seward (1801-1872). William Seward was Governor of New York State, a United States Senator, and served as Secretary of State under the Lincoln and Johnson administrations, and is credited with spearheading the purchase of the Alaska Territory from Russia in 1867. Since 1955, Seward House Museum has functioned as a historic house museum, featuring one of the country’s most complete collections of original artifacts. Welcoming over 15,000 visitors every year, the home and grounds are the crown jewel of Cayuga County, and perhaps all of central New York. In the past 4-5 years, the museum has concentrated on modernizing operations and reaching out to new and geographically diverse audiences by introducing varied tour narratives and technology. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and is a National Historic Landmark.
