Welcome to the Safe Haven Museum and Education Center
The Safe Haven Museum and Education Center is dedicated to keeping alive the stories of the 982 refugees from World War II who were allowed into the United States as "guests" of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. These refugees were housed at Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York, from August 1944 until February 1946.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated to, and attended the 70th reunion and Ride to Remember!
We want to hear from you! Do you or someone in your family have memories of the refugee shelter? Museum board members and SUNY Oswego students have launched a project called, “The Neighbors Project,” to collect and catalogue these stories. Click here to read our press release.
