Items in New York Heritage are organized into collections, which provide additional context for understanding their significance and meaning.
This collection consists of documents relating to politics, business, foreign affairs, and the family’s personal affairs, which not only offer a glimpse into nineteenth century rural life in New York State, but detail machine politics on a regional, state, and national level into the early twentieth century.

A choice painting collection that dates to the early 19th century. It includes works by such notables as Henry Walton, whose lithographs depict mid-19th century life, and Alison Mason Kingsbury Bishop, an exemplar of a mid-twentieth century modernist style. From 2009 to early 2010 it was on display in a successful rotating exhibit “Historic Paintings Unwrapped” featuring different works each month.
