Mission Statement

The Beacon Historical Society is an organization of people committed to preserving, procuring and presenting the City of Beacon's long heritage and history.

Description

The Beacon Historical Society was formed in 1976, with a mission to preserve, procure, and present Beacon’s heritage and history. To that end, the Society’s collections contain more than 2000 items, including books, prints, documents, photographs, postcards, paintings, maps and artifacts--all relating to the city of Beacon, NY.

From its inception in 1976, when a handful of preservation-minded citizens organized into a group to save Beacon’s unique history, the Beacon Historical Society has grown into an invaluable repository of our community’s heritage. Through donations of historic photographs, treasured family scrapbooks, old business ledgers, maps, and scores of other local items, Beacon residents have made us the Community’s Attic, a room of priceless collections that hold the memories of times past, ready to reveal our city’s story. Our collections have historic items not to be found elsewhere.
