The Historical Society has an archive of materials including books, documents, photos, maps and ephemera that focuses on local citizens, businesses and architecture.
We are happy to help you with your search for information on Newburgh. All questions must be submitted in writing. Questions may be forwarded by mail.
NOTE: We are temporarily not accepting research queries by email.
Our volunteer researchers will perform a free search of your topic for the first 30 minutes. After that, we reserve the right to charge for time at $10 per half-hour plus the cost of copies and postage (members pay $5 per half-hour).
- To visit our archives, please make an appointment by calling (845) 561-3790. (Please do not leave questions at this number; it is to be used for appointment requests only.)
