Now on view: Warrensburgh Bicentennial
The Warrensburgh Museum of Local History was founded in 1975, at the start of America's Bicentennial Celebration. Storage trunks and attics of local residents have yielded thousands of artifacts and photographs related to Warrensburg's history. In 2002 the museum was closed for renovation and reorganization by the Warrensburgh Historical Society and reopened in July 2009 with all new exhibits chronicling the town's history from prehistoric times to the present.
Exhibits for pre-schoolers to adults include period clothing, logging and farming tools, school and church history, and products, tools and documents of Warrensburg's "Golden Age" spanning a century from 1850 to 1950. Exhibits continue to be updated, and temporary exhibits about specific topics added.
The Museum is a joint accomplishment between the Warrensburgh Historical Society and the Town of Warrensburg.
