Long Description:
Historial marker at school states:
The Chili District No.4 School was built in 1848 and operated as such until 1952. On September 19, 1965, it was dedicated as a museum. Established by legislation passed February 22, 1822, the township of Chili is believed to have been named after the South American Republic of Chile. It was formerly part of the Town of Riga, and earlier known as East Pulteney. Old deeds called it "Black Creek Township."

The old school as recently gone through renovations and the museum is open by appointment only. The Chili Town Historian can be reached at 585-88-6123 to arrange a visit. The museum holds many artifacts of interest from the mid 1800's.
