What a great surprise! I bought this for the art gallery, but I had no idea that the house was this hidden treasure! It is absolutely fantastic! The tour guide was very good, informative, and friendly. After the tour, we were able to take our time and walk through the house again by ourselves. I'll definitely be back!

I honestly didn’t know we would be offered a tour, I felt bad when we got to the end to realize we didn’t have cash to tip the guy that gave the tour because he was the best! The house was beautiful, and it’s so amazing they actually use the space such as holding events. And the art gallery to display a local artist weekly. Thanks for preserving history, supporting local, and also the art!

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.
