The museum is found in the Town Hall in the village of Perrysburg and is open the last Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. until noon or by contacting the historian or town clerk and an appointment can be set. Many local artifacts have found a good home within the walls of the museum, formally the school house. Prize possessions are the minature of the JN Adam Tuberculosis Sanitarium made in the late 1930's showing the entire campus of the institution in perfect scale; a signature quilt made in the 1850's by local women to accompany a family leaving the area for the west and returned from the west coast in 1980's to its original home; a wonderful genealogy library as well as many other fine pieces of history including Native American displays, one room school house histories and post office and war memorabilia.


Last Saturday of every month: 10:00AM - Noon

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
