The year was 1889. Harlow E. Bundy, an entrepreneur by trade and nature teamed up with his brother, Willard Bundy, to market the time recorder. Willard worked as a jeweler and inventor, and combining his expertise with his brother's business savvy, the two founded Bundy Manufacturing Company. After working in Binghamton, the brothers' company moved to Endicott and changed names. Today, people know it as IBM.

The brother's legacy still stands in Binghamton, though, in the form of Harlow Bundy's one-time house, now the center of the Bundy Museum of History and Art. The museum preserves not only the story of the brothers, but also the history and artwork of the region that inspired them. The collection includes a wide array of early manufacturing implements, broadcasting tools, and even a life-sized recreation of the Bundy's booth from the 1893 World's Fair. The curators run an open art gallery that showcases different artists every month, as well as an African Gallery focusing on ancestral and ceremonial African artifacts. There's even a vintage barbershop on the campus, a recreation of the one that stood next to IBM's original Endicott headquarters.

Q&A with a Member on the Board of Trustees

What is the experience like?

?The best field trip ever??school children from all over Central New York share this sentiment when they visit Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum. Last year, over 1,800 school children learned about the Erie Canal, boat building, [and] life on a canal boat, and they experienced what it is like to be a real archaeologist searching for historic artifacts while enjoying our top-notch education program. An award-winning historic site, the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum preserves the history of the only restored historic dry dock on the canal and shares the story of the Erie Canal?s role in making New York the Empire State.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Walk along the Erie Canal to the stone aqueduct. Bring or rent a bike and explore along the path where Sal the mule walked from Buffalo to Albany pulling the canal boats loaded with New York state agricultural products, and see the sites that thousands of immigrants from Ireland and all of Europe first saw as they traveled on the Erie Canal to settle western New York and the states west [of there].

Colossal train engines once pulled hefty freight along the O&W Railway's main line. Today, where the rails lines formerly cut through glistening tree canopies, a 2-mile unpaved trail splices through six rural hamlets, just 90 miles from New York City. It's along this rails-to-trails path that Woodridge Segway Tours whisks its adventurers through beautiful mountain views, clean country air, and the sounds of fresh water trickling. With safety helmets securely atop their heads, tour takers steer the two-wheeled segway transporters with intuitive gestures: leaning forward to go ahead, leaning backward to reverse, and pulling on their ears to make the segways sing.

In the summer of 1850, a moderately successful writer brought his young wife, Lizzie, and their baby, Malcolm, to the town where his father grew up, Berkshire. Seduced by its picturesque countryside, the writer impulsively bought a farm, which would become the family’s home for the next 13 years and the place where he penned a novel that would change the face of American literature: Moby-Dick.

Today, the Berkshire Historical Society maintains the farmhouse where Melville sharpened his quills, gazed out the library window, and drank in the view of Mount Greylock, whose statuesque peak supposedly inspired the elusive white whale that taught Ahab to use his nose as a blowhole. The house was old even then, as it was originally built in the Georgian style back in 1780, acquiring Federal-style details in the 1840s. Careful preservation allows visitors to wander through Melville’s study and gaze upon the fireplace featured in his short story I and My Chimney. They can also observe the piazza that makes an appearance in The Piazza Tales, and see the restored barn where Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne whiled away the hours with deep literary conversation and video games.

In addition to pondering the rooms where Melville lived his days, visitors peruse furniture, portraits, and clothing from the Berkshire Historical Society’s collection of artifacts and enjoy exhibits and events such as plays. Those who make appointments in advance can also immerse themselves in the manuscripts, atlases, oral-history tapes, and photographs that populate the Margaret H. Hall Library and Archives.
