The Gilboa Museum has rare Devonian Fossils on permanent display. The Juried History Center offers a view into how life was lived in the late 19th and early 20th century in upstate New York. By 1917 the Town and Village of Gilboa had to be moved to higher ground as the original sites were completely flooded and destroyed on purpose. The reservoir that was created became the first in a series of water resources for NYC Water Shed Projects. Come view the oldest tree fossils in the world and the Village that vanished in the early 1900's.
