Collections

Brookside Museum is home to the Saratoga County Historical Society (SCHS). SCHS cares for over 25,000 historic artifacts that tell Saratoga County’s story. The collections are stored on-site in our historic building in a secure and environmentally controlled environment. SCHS is permanently charged by New York State Education department thus we take collections care very seriously, abiding by the standards outlined by the Board of Regent’s. We are committed to making collections accessible while balancing preservation needs. We strongly encourage historical research using our collections.

Collection items are available for viewing by appointment. It requires time and professional staff to retrieve information about items in the collection and to physically remove the pieces from their storage location, so appointments are required. Contact the curator, Kathleen Coleman, at 885.4000 or kcoleman@brooksidemuseum.org to make arrangements.

You may also browse the collection online! Visit www.brooksidemuseum.net to browse the collections database.
