The Town of Hume is proud to have the FIRST town owned museum in Allegany County and the first in the Southern Tier!
In April 2000, the history department moved into the "lodge hall" in the hamlet of Hume at the corner of Claybed and School Streets. For more than fifty years the Rebekah Lodge #491 held meetings here, along with the Odd Fellows Lodge and the Hume Community Club.
The community club and the Odd Fellows folded their organizations in the late seventies to early eighties, leaving the financial burden to the Rebekah's. With the declining funds and membership the Rebekah's were very receptive to the idea of sharing the building with the town's history department. In September of 2002 the Rebekah's folded their lodge after more than 90 years.
