The Elizabethtown Museum is the Adirondack History Center Museum which displays artifacts from over two centuries of life in Essex County and the central Adirondacks. Ten major exhibit areas spread over three floors of a 1915 school building introduce visitors to early farming and frontier life, wilderness exploration and recreation, logging and mining.
This Adirondack museum's collection includes a Concord stagecoach, antique dolls, a 1920's stage curtain, an Adirondack lean-to and an 1850's Washington printing press. Visitors are invited to climb the 58 foot fire tower and stroll in the Colonial Gardens.
The museum's Brewster Library has a collection of books, maps, newspapers, photographs and other research materials. Special events are scheduled each year including performances, lectures, tours and special exhibits.
