IMG 20160204 143742The General Store was the commercial center of town and the primary place you would sell/purchase goods and collect your mail. Much like a Walmart of the 1800's, just about anything you needed was available at the local general store. The Museum has an extensive collection of items you might find at one of these general stores on display.

woodstock 1969 poster woodstock69The words of Max Yasgur, on whose farm the Woodstock Festival took place during three steamy August days during the summer of 1969, delighted the hundreds of thousands of young people who had gathered on his meadows to hear the legendary rock and folk music artists of the era. "I'm a farmer. I don't know how to speak to twenty people at one time, let alone a crowd like this..." reveals a different aspect to the festival, and its later reincarnation into the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, that is now explored by the new exhibit being assembled at the Sullivan County Museum. The land on which the stage was erected was cleared by early Scottish immigrants nearly a century and a half earlier. This exhibit will follow this, and subsequent, families whose own stories preceeded that of Yasgur.

HatExhibitIn celebration of spring, 2013, the Sullivan County Historical Society has on display in the downstairs foyer glass case a collection of ladies' hats. Each of these ladies' head-dressea represents different historical eras; the earliest hat being dated as far back as 1845.

This exhibit has been created by the SCHS Museum's Exhibit Director Sharon Thorpe. With each hat style representing a particular era, Sharon, through the exhibit, challenges visitors to accurately guess the era which each particular hat represents.

As always, the SCHS Musuem is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
