Historically Lewis

Home of the Lewis County Historical Society

For almost 20 years, the Lewis County Historical Society has sponsored and put on the Black River Valley Concert Series – a set of Saturday-evening musical performances that take place through the winter months at the Historical Society’s beautiful “Temple” on State Street in downtown Lowville.

Each year, we invite a variety of performers from across the State and beyond to share their talents in the Temple’s lovely Blue Room, with its special and impeccable acoustics. Vocalists, small ensembles, dance ensembles, bluegrass, gospel, a cappella, folk, rock and jazz are just some of the genres that have graced the stage in the Blue Room. A warm, comfortable, lounge atmosphere makes for a lovely evening out with family and friends, and the Lewis County Historical Society provides delicious refreshments and beverages to accompany these delightful evenings.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Black River Valley Concert Series could not take place without the benefit of sponsors for it. Individuals, organizations, and businesses are encouraged to participate by partially or fully sponsoring one of the upcoming concerts.  We gratefully accept all sponsorship donations (big and small) to help offset the cost of each year’s upcoming concert series season. See our Sponsorships page for more details.
