Endicott, NY is the birthplace of International Business Machines (IBM), a company that has changed the world for over 100 years. It also became the home of Endicott Johnson Shoe Co. (EJ), the world’s largest shoe manufacturer by 1950. Since the early 1900’s these two companies have dominated the history of Endicott and also greatly impacted the history of all of Broome County.
The Endicott History and Heritage Area, managed by the Old Village of Union Historical Society, houses two extensive museums covering the histories of EJ and IBM. The amazing stories of these two companies, told with displays of hundreds of artifacts, help define how such a small village in upstate central New York became the hometown for two international giants of industry.
The IBM museum, originally created by IBM for its employees, is now available for all to see and enjoy.
The EJ museum, an all-inclusive collection of never-before-seen EJ items, is the result of 50 years of searching by ten avid Endicott collectors.
The hours are 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. every Saturday.

In 1889, two brothers, Willard Bundy a jeweler and inventor, and Harlow E. Bundy, a young entrepreneur, opened a time recording clock company in downtown Binghamton. By the turn of the 20th century, thousands of workers were clocking in and out of work on Bundy Time Recorders. The company flourished, moved to Endicott, and eventually became IBM.
While the factories in Binghamton are now long gone, you can experience the world that spawned the Bundy Manufacturing Company at Harlow Bundy’s home – now the Bundy Museum of History & Art, 129 Main St. on Binghamton’s Westside.
We at the Bundy Museum seek to not only honor the accomplishments of Binghamton’s entrepreneurs like the Bundys, but also to pay our respects to the culture that influenced them.
Our collection ranges from early manufacturing and broadcasting artifacts to international art designed to enrich local culture.
We honor local entrepreneurs, artists, and personalities by showcasing the fruits of their labor and the culture they influenced. Your support helps us ensure that the historical and cultural achievements of the Southern Tier do not fade into the shadows of history.
The Museum serves 3 purposes:
To preserve the legacy of Willard & Harlow E. Bundy
To relive the elegance and beauty of the Victorian Era
To educate and inspire the general public on the fine arts
