Summer 2023 Exhibition:

The First 40: A Celebration of
Local History Preserved

1983 - 2023 The Roeliff Jansen Historical Society

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the dedication of the restored and repurposed church building, from July through October 2023, the RJHS is exhibiting a selection of rarely seen objects from its museum collection. The exhibit, titled The First 40: A Celebration of Local History Preserved, will highlight how each of these objects can bridge connections between the people, technology, and traditions of rural New York's past, to our modern lives today.
