Rensselaer County Historical Society

59 Second Street
Troy, New York

Phone: 518-272-7232

Statement of Purpose:

The Rensselaer County Historical Society is a dynamic educational institution linking local history and heritage with contemporary life.


The Hart-Cluett Mansion, built in 1827, is an outstanding example of late federal-style architecture, with significant plasterwork and woodwork and exterior marble and ironwork details.

Two floors of furnished rooms convey the life of an active 19th century urban household, that included numerous children and servants. Changing exhibition galleries in an adjacent townhouse explore various aspects of life in Rensselaer County.

Current exhibitions include the changing landscape of the county and early printers of Troy and Lansingburgh. The largest local history research library in Rensselaer County is also part of this three-building complex. The library and archives offer an extensive collection of primary and secondary resources relating to the County, including maps, photographs, manuscript materials, and materials connected to local business and industry and community organizations.
