The collections within the Department of History contain newspaper clippings, genealogies, published histories, and photographs, but a number of interesting artifacts and ephemera items serve as a window into Orleans County's material culture. One particular set of items, once belonging to Dr. Frank Haak Lattin, a dealer in natural specimens, a physician, and NYS Assemblyman includes souvenir tickets from the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
