Adirondack History Museum


Elizabethtown's original central school provides ample space for a large collection of artifacts from over 200 years of Essex County history and culture. The 2021seasonal exhibits include:

"Gone Fishin' - A History of Fishing in the Adirondacks"

“A Woman’s View – Recognizing Artists in the Adirondacks,” which is part of the museum’s celebration of 100 years of Woman’s Suffrage, according to the museum’s website.

“American Women Win the Vote,” highlights the fight for women’s suffrage and women winning the right to vote throughout the Unite States with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.

In recognition of the museum fire tower turning 100 years old, “Adirondack Fire Towers” explores this history of the towers and observers stationed at them.

The exhibit features a climbable fire tower.
