As a history buff, I'm always looking for museums. Small museums, or community-oriented musems, are my specialty. Schenectady History Museum, located in the heart of the Stockade area, was not a disappointment.
We were on our own to tour the museum. Plenty of information is provided with each exhibit. We missed the weekend when many of the homes -- some dating back to the town's early days cica 1700 -- were open to the public. I took this tour about 20 years ago and was sorry to have missed it on this trip to my hometown.
The Stockade is also home to a statue of Lawrence, the town's Native American. Next trip I will stop by to give my regards to Lawrence.
