Mission Statement

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

Description

The Schenectady County Historical Society was founded in 1905 to preserve the history of the area, promote historical research, disseminate historical knowledge, and preserve items of local significance. The Society’s museum and local history and genealogy research library (Grems-Doolittle Library) have been located at 32 Washington Avenue in the Stockade neighborhood in Schenectady since 1958. The Mabee Farm Historic Site in Rotterdam Junction, which includes the oldest house still standing in the Mohawk Valley, was gifted to the Society in 1993. On the Mabee Farm Historic Site, the George E. Franchere Education Center was constructed and opened in 2011. With the construction of the Education Center, activities and events can now be held at the Mabee Farm year-round.
