The Clinton County Historical Association is located in the Four Chimneys  building  at 98 Ohio Avenue on the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base.  The county exhibit interprets the area's history from the earliest recorded times (1600) to the present day through its collections of paintings, maps, furniture and decorative arts. The decisive Battle of Plattsburgh in 1814 was the culminating event in a century of naval warfare on Lake Champlain among the French, British and the fledgling American nation. Underwater archeological discoveries highlight this period. The period of settlement after the Revolutionary War is explored.

Special exhibits are regularly presented on North Country themes, including iron mining and other 19th-century industries. Collections feature Redford Glass, Staffordshire china, portraiture, photographs and textiles.
