Mission Statement

Our mission at the Dutchess County Historical Society is to preserve and share the history of Dutchess County from its earliest peoples to the present. DCHS strives to recognize the contributions of the County and its inhabitants. DCHS works to interpret and share this wealth with current residents, visitors as well as tomorrow's audience. The Dutchess County Historical Society has been working to discover, acquire, preserve and interpret the County's extraordinary history.

Description

The Dutchess County Historical Society is known for its publications, educational outreach and collection of archival material, photographs and dimensional objects, inclusive of the entire County. A Yearbook of articles on local history has been published annually since 1914 and is the oldest continuously published annual in New York State. In addition, 14 books on local history bear the Society's imprint. The Society has developed a series of history trunks based on the local history curriculum for use in the 4 th and 7 th grades and offers a school program at Glebe House for students. Collaborations with Catherine Street Community Center and Mid-Hudson Children's Museum have broadened our audience. Exhibits, lectures, conferences and tours round out the programming for members of the Society and for the community at large. We maintain and interpret two historic buildings in the city of Poughkeepsie, the Clinton House and the Glebe House.
