Washington County Historical Society

WCHS Programs & Events - 2017

To be announced: Look for the Cronkhite Lecture Series during the months of March and April.

Save The Date:

The 2017 History Fair will be held on Saturday, September 30th at Hartford Central School from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Our theme will be "Forts and Battles" (of all kinds!). It will include the "battle" of women winning the right to vote in New York State. 2017 marks the one hundredth anniversary of that momentous event which took place in 1917.

We will be sending out information to historians and historical societies in just a few short months. We hope you will consider having an exhibit featuring you town or village. Stay tuned for updates.
