Clinton County Historical Museum

Appropriately enough, the historic home now occupied by the museum was also used by the British during the Battle of Plattsburgh in 1814. The exhibits cover 300 years of the area's history including 54 pieces of rare Redford glass, a legacy of the once famous glassworks on the Saranac River that drew craftsmen from as far away as Scotland and England. A diorama of the battles of Valcour (1776) and Plattsburgh (1814) explains Lake Champlain's strategic importance in these two pivotal battles. Special exhibits. Library. Gift Shop. Special Events: Vintage car meet and antiques show. Lectures and slide programs. Annual open house at the lighthouse on Valcour Island.

Open: Feb-Dec, Tue-Fri, 12-4pm; Sat 1-4pm. Closed holidays. Admission Fee.
