Piseco Lake Historical Museum

The pre-Civil War Riley House, which dates back to the once thriving tannery and sawmill industry found in the Piseco Lake area, is now home to a local history collection. Artifacts and photographs tell the story of local hotels and industries, old schools, families, and the famous Piseco beach carousel (now on display at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont). There's even an intact mid-19th century saloon--Riley's Tavern--complete with bar and back room.

The nearby Bush Pilot Museum at the Piseco Airport (518-548-8794) features airplane photographs and a history display.

Open: July-Aug, Fri-Sun, 1-4pm. Donation.
