Brookside Museum to Re-Open in 2020

BALLSTON SPA — As a result of the positive response to the “Save Brookside Museum” campaign, the Saratoga County Historical Society/Brookside Museum Board of Directors has announced that the museum will reopen in February 2020 after its normal January closure. With significant contributions from the Towns of Ballston and Milton, as well as support from the community, over $65,000 has been received to date. SCHS/Brookside Museum is now entering the next phase of the campaign to achieve its goal of raising $100,000 by March 2020 to ensure the continued operation of the museum and support of its extensive collections and educational outreach programs. 

To ensure the long-term viability of Brookside, a team has been formed to re-envision the operations of the museum, seeking to expand our capacity to present local history to the community.  An important aspect of this initiative is to work together with other historical organizations in Saratoga County on this shared desire to inspire a love for our past, and its importance in providing perspectives for our daily lives. SCHS/Brookside Museum will be in the forefront of this effort during 2020 and in the years to come. 

To contribute to the campaign, donations may be sent to Saratoga County Historical Society, 6 Charlton St., Ballston Spa, NY 12020 or visit www.brooksidemuseum.org. Contact K.
