November is New York State History Month!

Today’s historical community is as dynamic as it is diverse. It includes scholars, curators, preservationists, librarians, archivists, genealogists, re-enactors and local and community historians. In November, historians across the state will work together to strengthen the state’s history community and raise New Yorkers’ appreciation of the value and impact of New York State’s history.

We encourage you to explore this site to learn more about the rich and compelling history of the Empire State and to discover various history-related programs offered through the New York State Museum and a variety of organizations across the state.
