Waterford Historical Museum and Cultural Center [NY]

The Waterford Historical Museum and Cultural Center was first opened in 1966 in order to preserve and showcase the history of Waterford, New York, which is located just north of Albany. The museum organization was originally focused on the preservation of the Hugh White Homestead, which today has been moved from its original location and serves as the residence for the museum.

The museum offers a variety of exhibits focusing on the history of Waterford, museum tours, a field trip to the Hill-Stead Museum of Farmington, Connecticut, and a series of traveling lectures. The site offers general information about all above programs, as well as a history of the museum and information on current projects.
