The City & Town of Binghamton: separate entities

Our museum is housed in the old Hawleyton Methodist Church at 923 Hawleyton Road, Binghamton, NY 13903 and contains a collection of artifacts and histories pertaining to the Township of Binghamton which is a separate entity from the City of Binghamton, our neighbor to the north. If you have a query about a business, place, or person who was connected to the City of Binghamton, you would be better served by contacting the Broome County Historian whose contact information can be found at

This can be confusing because we all use the postal address of Binghamton, NY. (The Township, which includes smaller areas such as Park Terrace, Hawleyton and Ingraham Hill and Pierce Creek, has no post office of its own.)
