Schenectady County Historical Society


Nestled in the heart of Schenectady’s Stockade Historic District (described by the National Park Service as “the highest concentration of historic period homes in the country”) is the Schenectady Historical Museum and the Grems-Doolittle Library. Join us throughout the year to take a walking tour of the Stockade and beyond. Or, come in to meet a renowned speaker and check out our interactive exhibits that tell the stories of Schenectady. The Museum is the perfect starting point for discovering the history of Schenectady County. Through programs and interactive exhibits, visitors can explore how Schenectady County has changed over the years. Adjacent to the Schenectady History Museum is the Grems-Doolittle Library, the perfect spot for researching Schenectady history!
