About Us

The Schenectady County Historical Society brings to life the region’s dynamic history through interactive exhibits, talks, workshops, concerts, programs and community events for all audiences at the Mabee Farm Historic Site, the Grems-Doolittle Library, the Schenectady History Museum, and the historic Brouwer House.

The Schenectady County Historical Society continues to change and grow, and we are more active than ever in presenting vibrant programming. Please visit our events calendar to find information about upcoming events.

Mission

The Schenectady County Historical Society shares stories, inspires dialogue, and encourages understanding of the history, people, and cultures of Schenectady County.

Vision

The Schenectady County Historical Society strengthens our community as an increasingly vital destination and resource for exploring history.

Financial Support

The Schenectady County Historical Society is a private, not-for-profit organization. We are wholly supported by the dues of our members, interest and dividends earned on bequests willed to us, fees for admission and service, and sales in our two gift shops. Please consider supporting our mission in preserving and promoting Schenectady County’s history by making a gift or by becoming a member.
