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 2017 seasonal exhibits include “Adirondacks Suffragists: 100 Years of Votes For Women” and “A Sense of Place: Photography of the High Peaks.” Special programming is held throughout the season, so check the Museum’s web site out for their full schedule.
The Museum’s award-winning “Worked/Wild” exhibit serves as an introduction to the region by exploring the people who worked the land and those who enjoyed the glorious beauty of the Adirondacks. For younger visitors and the young at heart, “Arto Monaco and the Land of Makebelieve” presents an interactive area celebrating early amusement parks. Artifacts include a restored stagecoach, an Olympic bobsled, and a fire tower which guests are welcome to climb!
The Brewster Library research center houses a collection of rare books, maps, newspapers, photographs, census records, company ledgers, and other materials, and is open by appointment.
