The Fort Edward Historical Association will bring together those people interested in history, and especially in the history of the Villages and towns of Fort Edward, Hudson Falls, Kingsbury and neighboring communities. The Association’s major function is to discover and collect material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of this area through educational programs. The Association will provide for the preservation and viewing of such material, ensure its accessibility, as far as may be feasible, to all who wish to examine or study it. The Association will cooperate with New York State and local historical agencies to collect and preserve materials of statewide significance so that these educational materials can be made available to students and scholars. The Association may own, operate and maintain properties for the purpose and benefits of the Association. The Association will endeavor to expand and promote programs for the arts, which were begun by the Fort Edward Art Center. The Association serves the communities within the counties of Washington, Warren, Saratoga, Rensselaer and Essex through education outreach programs.
