Welcome from Ilene Frank, Executive Director

November is a great month to visit Rensselaer County and Downtown Troy. Stop by RCHS for our fall exhibits, At the Corner of Second and State: Where Troy’s History Intersects, “Conserving the Welfare & Best Interests of Our Depositors”: The Troy Savings Bank and Prospect of America: Selections of the Edgar Holloway Art Collection.

Our 2014 Annual Fund Campaign is going strong. Chaired by Elaine Larkin Grimm, the campaign has raised over $20,000 since we launched it earlier this summer. The Annual Fund provides essential unrestricted support necessary for the ongoing maintenance of the Museum’s historic buildings, staff salaries, and priority programs, including research, education, and exhibitions.

Please join Elaine, me, and our Board of Trustees in supporting this campaign. You can easily make a donation by clicking on the pay pal link, or call the museum for other ways to make your donation. As always, thank you to our supporters who ensure RCHS is here to provide great history programming and exhibits.

See you this fall!
