With four main exhibit galleries and a massive collection of photographs and documents, the CCHA Museum provides a fascinating experience for casual visitors and in-depth researchers alike. Our renowned collection includes an impressive and beautiful display of rare 19 th century Redford glass, manufactured on the banks of the Saranac River, as well as the Martin J. Aikin Commemorative Rifle—a one-of-a-kind War of 1812 artifact and the highlight of our military history gallery.

Open year-round, the CCHA Museum also serves as an occasional venue for expert talks on local history, and is the nerve center for our busy volunteers, who painstakingly work to preserve and archive items in our collection. For more information on our exhibits, including our Military History, Suffrage and Early Industry galleries, and, of course, our Gift Shop, just click on the links.
