Who are we?
The Granger Homestead Society is a not-for-profit organization. Our holdings consist of an 1816 Federal House and furnishings, one of the largest horse-drawn vehicle collections in Western New York State, five outbuildings, and twelve acres of land in Canandaigua, NY.
Over 350 members, a core of dedicated volunteers, a history of committed community leaders serving as trustees on the Board of Trustees; these are the people who keep their Homestead alive. They clean, bake, paint, construct, and instruct. They give tours, drive horses and raise money.
We are a totally self-sustaining organization. Grants help us with special projects, but our operating expenses are raised by memberships, gifts, bequests, and special events. We are fiscally solvent. Membership is 20% of our operating funds.
