Welcome to the Allegany County Historical Society

Towns and Villages/Rushford


Allegany County Historical Society was gifted many documents, scrapbooks, photos and postcard collection by Steven Gilbert, grandson of Allan H. Gilbert born to Eddy C. & Helen White GILBERT. Steven commented that all of these documents and photos pertain to Rushford, and the Gilberts who lived there for several generations, ending probably in the 1930's. Unrestricted Ownership was given to ACHS to "keep them or sell them to benefit the Society." Many of the documents and articles are presented on the website www.alleganyhistory.org under the "Town of Rushford Related Articles". We are sharing some of the postcards here and many more are available presently for viewing at the Society Office.
