Portrait Gallery

Our North Room exhibit hall contains a number of portraits of the early settlers of the Athens area. Among the more interesting pieces is a portrait "The Kingsbury Girls" attributed to american artist Susan Waters. Waters was an itinerant artist who traveled the Southern tier of New York and the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania. In 2009, the Tioga Point Museum commissioned the Buffalo State College Art Conservation Department to repair and conserve the painting.
