Alonzo Roberson’s Study

Women had their sanctuaries, as did men. This was where Mr. Roberson would conduct his private business. It holds a washroom and a liquor cabinet and private door to a back porch. Solitude certainly is rich.

Parlor Room

The Parlor room represents an important space for high-society women during the Gilded Age, as they could not meet outside of the home without being accompanied by a male relative or spouse. Margaret Roberson was part of a group of women who would rotate holding weekly calling hours in their parlors.

These critters have the most dexterous hands making them quite the night-time burglars–no garbage can lid can stop these opposable thumbs!

Ground Birds

There’s more than just birds lurking in the tall grass.

These birds are just a tiny sample of the specimens housed at Roberson, which all came from one man, Lee Loomis.

Link Pilot Maker

Developed by Binghamton native Edwin Link, the first simulator he made was built out of piano and organ parts from his father’s factory.

Model Train exhibition

The model exhibition is one of the largest in the region–a recreation of what the region looked like back in the 1950s (as well as sporting some headline events).
