Explore all that Mohawk Valley History has to offer
The history of the Mohawk Valley is never far away on MohawkValleyMuseums.us. This less than year-old website supports the museums and historical societies across the region by highlighting and sharing their articles and events throughout the year. At this time of year, events and activities are often indoors or held virtually, so you can keep warm while learning something new about the Mohawk Valley.
