The Cherry Valley Museum was established on October 23, 1957. It was housed in a converted Hop Barn on Lancaster Street. It moved to its present location in 1959.

Today, the Museum contains a large collection of artifacts that display and depict the history of Cherry Valley and its surrounding regions. The most notable information here is that of the Cherry Valley Massacre.

A Mohawk Indian Leader named Brant posted his men on a hill. Traveling several miles, Brant hid himself behind a large rock which was just near the road. The leader was well aware that Lieutenant Wormuth would soon pass that way together with Peter Sitz. The two left Cherry Valley when it was about to go dark. The settlement heard shots during the evening. The lieutenant’s horse returned with blood covering his saddle. Several men from the militia tried to find him but failed. The next day, Wormuth’s body was found behind the large rock.
