On December 1, 2015 we purchased the historic Depuy Canal House with a grant from Open Space Institute and the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. This is only the beginning- we need more money to move our museum to this wonderful building. Do your part and donate! You can mail to us at PO Box 23, High Falls, NY 12440 or use the Paypal link.
