On this page I will display photos of some hitorical places in Upstate New York.

Farmers' Museum

The site of The Farmers' Museum has deep roots in New York State's rural past. The land has been part of a working farm since 1813, when it was owned by James Fenimore Cooper. Judge Samuel Nelson, whose office is part of The Farmers' Museum Village, bought the farm in 1829 and raised sheep there. Fenimore Farm, as it came to be known, changed hands again in the 1870s, when it was acquired by the Clark family.

Hanford Mills

Explore America's industrial past. Situated in the northern Catskills, Hanford Mills Museum is a working saw and grist mill powered by a Fitz overshot waterwheel. The Museum also features tours of the John Hanford Farmstead and a gasoline powered engine and dynamo.

The Old Stone Fort

The Old Stone Fort Museum complex celebrates and preserves the rich, historic legacy of New York's beautiful Schoharie Valley. Buildings include an early 1700's home, 1780's Dutch barn,1830's law office and 1890's one-room school as well as the 1772 stone church that was fortified and attacked by British forces in 1780.
