The Cornwall Historical Society was founded in 1999. It is our mission to protect and preserve the history of Cornwall, Cornwall-on-Hudson and Mountainville. Our goal is to promote pride in our community, identification with its past, and to instill in our community a commitment to responsibility for its future. We present informative programs, hold dinners and host the popular Wine & Cheese event. We participate in Cornwall's Fall Festival, the Independence Day Celebration and, in some years, the River Fest in Summer. We have a display at the Cornwall Library of many of our donated items with a new display every few months. Check in your attic for items of historical significance to Cornwall, Cornwall-on-Hudson, and Mountainville and stop by to visit us with any questions or to donate. We accept donated items on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or call for an appointment.
