The volunteers of Friends of Lorenzo work tirelessly to help preserve and enhance the Lorenzo State Historic Site and to promote it as both a celebration of Central New York's history and a center of community life. 

For almost half a century of operation, we have supported restoration, interpretation, maintenance, and acquisition at Lorenzo, its mansion, gardens and out buildings.  Thousands of Central New Yorkers have benefited from the concerts, lectures, tours, and other events we sponsor. 

Located in Cazenovia, New York and founded in 1975, the Friends of Lorenzo, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, governed by a board of trustees. We would be happy to have you help our efforts.  Please donate or join today.
