Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The creator of the Twilight Zone has left a legacy in Binghamton, which led loyal fans Wednesday to create for him a lasting presence online.

The Bundy Museum of History and Art hosted the event, called "In the Zone with Rod Serling."

Organizers launched the Rod Serling Archive, which is a permanent exhibit at the museum, as well as a website
that has all of Serling's works, with items beyond the Twilight Zone series.

The archive was created to preserve Serling's creativity, and organizers said they wanted to share broader views than just the Twilight Zone.

"This is where Rod Serling grew up and found his inspiration and where he succeeded early in life in being and entertainer and writer," said Founder and Executive Director of The Bundy Museum, Michael Weinstein.

"He himself said that he didn't want to be associated exclusively with that legacy, he was much, much more," said Weinstein, "He was part of the golden age of television, he was part of the live age of broadcast television in the early 1950s."

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
