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 Rifleā€”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.

Exhibit Listing
Military Legacy Gallery

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.

Rum Across the Border - Revisited

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).
