The Schenectady County Historical Society shares stories, inspires dialogue, and encourages understanding of the history, people, and cultures of Schenectady County.
SCHS will be closed until further notice due to COVID-19
Years from now, Schenectadians will look back and wonder, “how did the COVID-19 pandemic affect Schenectady County? How did our ancestors respond to the crisis?” "What was life like for people quarantined, for months?"
Join us for a pastoral evening in the Barn at Mabee Farm, as we celebrate the farm-to-table tradition.
We own and operate three historic sites in Schenectady County – home to exhibitions, events, and programs.
