Hoosick’s Unknown Treasure is Now Open on the Second Saturday of the Month


For all of you who have wanted to visit the Louis Miller Museum but work on Mondays and Tuesdays, the Museum is now open on the second Saturday of each month throughout the summer, making it available to many more people to visit.


The Hoosick Township Historical Society is housed in the Louis Miller Museum at 166 Main Street in Hoosick Falls, NY. But that’s not the only thing that’s there. Hundreds, probably thousands of fantastic historic objects and memorabilia are on display. Interesting and informative, the rooms are filled with Victoriana, military uniforms, photographs, weapons, farm and home implements, and more. Beautiful Victorian dresses and hats, paintings, an actual Victorian parlor, and lots of Walter A. Wood, Eberle Brothers, Harriet Hoctor, and Grandma Moses memorabilia are there, too. In the Children’s Room you will find antique and classic toys and insect collections. Explore historic Hoosick through the old photographs and maps that you’ll find there. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop before you leave.


Walk through on your own or get a guided tour for free. See and learn what Hoosick was like back in the day. Hours are Monday and Tuesday from 1:00-4:00pm, the second Saturday of each month from10:00am-2:00pm through the summer, and whenever you see the “Open” flag flying outside.

You can also make an appointment by calling 581.686.4682 or emailing director@hoosickhistory.com.
