Founded in 1966, the Yorktown Museum first occupied two rooms in the Davenport House, then in 1970 moved to the Fowler House. In 1976 the Yorktown Museum relocated to its present location on the top floor of the old Yorktown School District 6th grade school at 1974 Commerce Street, currently known as The Yorktown Community Cultural Center.

The Doris and Cortland Auser Research Room
The Museum also houses a Library and Research Room that provides resource materials for delving into genealogy, local area history and antiques. Our map collections as well as old records and documentes are available for study and research.
