The Madrid Historical Society grew out of a committee formed in 2001 to celebrate Madridís Bicentennial in the summer of 2002. In February 2006, the Madrid Historical Society acquired an old farm house to use as a museum. The Walker House Museum, 191 County Route 31, opened in August 2006. Our primary goal is to preserve and share Madridís history today and for years to come. We are a non-profit organization with a provisional charter from New York State. Members enjoy meetings and activities that allow us to preserve the past for the present and future.
On the 2nd Sunday of August, we host a Community Worship Service in the Madrid Municipal Park. We hold a Fall Fun Day Event on the 4th Saturday of October featuring antique car displays, museum tours, making apple cider, and a bake sale.
Annual membership dues for the Madrid Historical Society are $5/individual or $10/family.
Sara Day-Schulz and Carrie Rutherford currently serve as Madrid Town Co-Historians.
