Highlights from Collections

A number of permanent exhibitions highlight some of our favorite artifacts.

Setting Schenectady’s Table: Our ceramics collection illustrates the changing nature of trade, food, and hospitality in Schenectady’s history.  Though techniques and styles evolved through the years, these ceramics evoke a sentiment we feel today: the pleasure of good food and drink, shared with great company.

1834 Yates Dollhouse:The second oldest dollhouse in America has spent its whole life in the Stockade! With original early-1800s furnishings and a painful history, it is one of SCHS’s most evocative pieces! For a short film produced by the Schoharie River Center which shares the story of the Yates Dollhouse, please visit youtube.com/watch?v=ncDCtDtMN5s
