Education & Outreach

"New York State is unique in the United States because it not only considers its cultural agencies to be an integral part of its educational system, it incorporates such agencies under Education Law instead of under Corporation Law."


Please call for information about group visits
and off-site lectures
and programs.

The Society has given
presentations to
such diverse groups as:

The Hudson Valley Tourism
Development Council


The Society's booth at the
3rd Annual
International Pickle Festival
in Rosendale won a special award as the most attractive (unpickled!) booth.
Althea Werner was one of the CHHS
volunteers who helped
spread the word.

The Century House Miners Club

Saturday morning, August 26, 2000 - Members of the newly-formed Miners Club got up early to spruce up the gateway to the Century House.

The Miners dug up all the old weeds and cut back all the brush growing around the gate area and prepared a flower bed. They also scraped, primed, and painted the Snyder Estate gate. After a hard day's work the Miners gathered on the porch of the Century House for a well-deserved picnic lunch.

The Miners gateway project is a part of a larger Society Paint and Repair project.

Part of the funding for this Miners Club project was provided by FleetBoston Financial Corporation's "Fleet All-Stars" program.

If your child is between the ages of 5 and 15, we hope you'll consider enrolling him or her in the Century House Miners Club.  They'll learn about local and New York State history through informative newsletters, guest speakers, group outings, historic preservation, community improvement projects, and more.

Simply send the child's name and date of birth, your name, and your address, phone number, and e-mail address.  Also indicate any special skills or interests your child may have.  Please enclose a check for the annual membership fee of $10 and send it to:

The Century House Historical Society
