Our exhibit scheduled for 2020 has been postponed until 2021.
The museum is not large enough for guests to appropriately social distance, therefore we have determined to make this a year to catch up with accessioning our growing collections, and prepare for next year’s exhibit in 2021.
The Museum is indebted to extensive collections of photographs and artifacts generously donated by Susan Pruyn King, the only surviving Pruyn grandchild, and the Tummins and Vroman families, longstanding residents of Newcomb.
Camp Santanoni has always prospered from cooperation between town and camp. Today ownership of this beautiful historic site is in the managing hands of the State of New York, but generous support is also provided by the Town of Newcomb and the Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH). The trip into Camp Santanoni is well worth the effort. It’s a moderate walk or bike ride (4.9 miles one way), but visitors can also reserve a horse-driven wagon ride by calling Larry Newcombe at 518-639-5534; 518-480-1743.
Below: Call the Museum 518-582-2274 to reserve time in The Bissell Reading Room shown below. It’s available to anyone desiring to do research with computer access to Ancestry.com, a library with a complete collection of the Tahawus Cloudsplitters, some Newcomb Family Files, and archived photograph albums.
