Permanent Exhibits

The permanent displays at the museum tell visitors about the town’s history through four different eras. They include information about the town’s founding, how it got its name, its early industry, a period of decline, and how it has changed in modern times. Displays include items from long-demolished school buildings, one of Newburgh’s first pianos, menus from old restaurants, and more.
