IBM Endicott “Collection” To Be Previewed

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

An exhibit featuring the history of IBM Endicott will be opening for a public preview on Thursday.

The IBM Collection is going on display at the new Endicott History and Heritage Center on Washington Avenue.

The center is located in the former Burt’s Department Store building, a short distance from what had been IBM’s massive North Street manufacturing complex.

IBM established the historical collection in 1984. It chronicles the evolution of what became known as “Big Blue” from its early days in its Endicott birthplace.

The exhibit for years was housed in what became the Huron Campus after IBM sold its Endicott property in 2002.

It generally was open only to IBM employees and retirees. Few Endicott residents who had no connection with the company have had an opportunity to see it.

The Old Village of Union Historical Society signed a long-term agreement with IBM last year to clear the way for the collection to be moved to Washington Avenue and put on public display.

The preview open house will be held Thursday from noon to 4p.m.

The History and Heritage Center will be open Thursday afternoons during the summer. It also will be available for special functions by appointment.
