Adirondack History Museum

Elizabethtown's original central school provides ample space for a large collection of artifacts from over 200 years of Essex County history and culture. The 2016 Exhibits include Essex County Immigrants: Faces and Stories and Grace Hudowalski and Hiking in the High Peaks. Also new in 2016 is the Rosenberg Art Gallery, which hosts two shows annually.

Larger artifacts include a restored stagecoach, an Olympic bobsled, a canvas boat that converts into a tent, and a fire tower. Learn about Lake Champlain's role in pivotal military battles and events, from the French and Indian War to the War of 1812, by watching a half-hour sound-and-light show displayed on a large 35-foot map of the Champlain Valley.

The Brewster Library research center houses a collection of rare books, maps, newspapers, photographs, census records, company ledgers and other materials.

Temporary exhibits featuring local artists and Annual Classic Car Show.


Open May - October, Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
