The Military Legacy Gallery covers the major military events in Clinton County from the Battle of Valcour in 1776 through to the Citizens Military Training Camp Maneuvers in 1939. Showcased are the stories of the Aikin Volunteers and the Plattsburgh Idea, along with a diorama created by Arto Monaco.
Many Clinton County residents were involved in one aspect or another of liquor transport during the Prohibition Era. This two room exhibit recreates the atmosphere of the era telling local stories. The exhibit was created with the help of a Corridor of Commerce Grant from the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership (CVNHP).
Clinton County Historical Association awarded $8000 in Grant Funding from the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership for Pathway to America250. The purpose of this grant is to form a team and prepare a plan to make the America250 commemoration of our nation’s founding the most comprehensive and inclusive celebration in our County’s history.
