New York State Historical Association [NY]

The New York State Historical Association was founded to help preserve and promote the early history of the state of New York. Today, the association runs the Fenimore Art Museum, which is located in Cooperstown, and a extensive research library, which is also located in Cooperstown, and features over 88,000 volumes pertaining to early New York and American history.

The association offers a variety of programs designed for schoolchildren, such as workshops, gallery tours, spring field days, curriculum resources for teachers, and the distance learning program, where museum educators create a "virtual trip" to association museums. The website offers visitor information and an events calendar.
