Columbia County Historical Society & Museum

Columbia County Historical Society & Museum

The Columbia County Historical Society is the custodian of four historic buildings, more than 7,500 objects and a distinguished research library, spanning four centuries of the county's history. The objects on display were chosen to give an indication of the unexpected breadth, variety, and charm of the society's holdings. This exhibition is the first step in raising awareness of the richness of the collections, while making more material accessible to the public. To help achieve its mission, the society owns, maintains, and interprets collections and buildings of historical significance, and it operates a museum that includes exhibition galleries and an extensive research library.
