Skenesborough Museum

The Skenesborough Museum was founded in 1959 during the town of Whitehall’s 200th (bicentennial) anniversary.  The building it occupies is a 1917 reinforced concrete Canal Terminal building.  It was later used as a town shed before NYS planned to demolish it.

June 28th, 1959 it was dedicated and in 1960 the town received permission to use the building as long as it remain a museum.¹

      While we do not work directly with the Museum, I know the people who do. I have sent a request for the current hours and will respond as soon as I know.

      As the Museum is primarily staffed by volunteers, I am pretty sure the Museum will not be open on the 23rd.

      As soon as I know otherwise though, I will let you know!
