Mission Statement

The Mission of the Penfield Foundation is to preserve and protect the historic landscape, hamlet and homestead associated with the early nineteenth-century ironworking history of Ironville, New York and to teach visitors and town residents the social, industrial and business history of the Crown Point Iron Company and the family history of the Penfields through exhibits, tours and special events. The collection includes historical information which supports local family genealogy, military, business, industrial, social and agricultural history of Crown Point. To this end, the Foundation maintains the homestead as a museum which includes a collection of buildings, artifacts and an archive of documents, photographs and books related to local history.
