New York State Historical Association


The New York State Historical Association was founded in 1899 by a group of New Yorkers who were interested in promoting greater knowledge of the early history of the state. In 1939 Stephen Carlton Clark offered the Association a new home in the village of Cooperstown. Clark took an active interest in expanding the holdings and in 1944 turned over Fenimore House, one of his family's properties, to be used as a new headquarters and museum.
