  • Finger Lakes Boating Museum -     In 1996 a small group of dedicated antique boating enthusiasts,  motivated in part by a common concern over the rapidly dwindling  population of locally-built wooden boats, committed to establishing a  museum that would preserve the boating heritage of the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.  The museum founders, all active in the "antique boat world," felt that a  museum focusing on the impact that recreational and commercial boating  had on the development of the lakes and tourism in the Finger Lakes  Region would increase appreciation and awareness as well as help  preserve these vintage craft.  The Finger Lakes Boating Museum exists for the  education and preservation of the boating activities and boat building  heritage of the Finger Lakes.   Finger Lakes Boating Museum found its permanent home in 2014 on the  South end of Keuka Lake just outside of the village of Hammondsport.
