The Cornwall Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and presentation of the history of Cornwall and its people. We believe Cornwall is enriched and strengthened by awareness of its unique cultural, economic and social history. The Society has three key activities:
* Preservation: The Society is actively collecting, documenting, conserving, and safely storing artifacts of the town’s past.
* Promotion: Our publications, programs, talks, exhibits, and demonstrations — all offer aspects of Cornwall’s history.
* Presentation: Within its building the Society mounts two to three exhibits a year. In addition, questions on all topics of Cornwall history and citizens are welcome. Of special value is our large collection of photographs from the 1900s, including those made from glass plates and reproductions from private collections.
