Fulton County Museum and Historical Society

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30A, near Johnstown in Fulton County

Fulton County Museum is located on the original site of the 1831 Kingsboro Academy in the Historic District of Old Kingsborough, now a part of Gloversville.

In 1972, the Fulton County Historical Society purchased the empty Kingsboro Elementary School, built in 1900, moving artifacts to the renovated school and promoting area history ever since. Several exhibits are available, like the only complete glove-making exhibit in the U.S. and a leather tannery of the early 1900s. Nine large areas contain farm and industry exhibits, a textile weaving room, an authentic Indian Long House with artifacts, and more. Museum located at 237 Kingsboro Avenue, with Hours of Operation in May, June, September and October, Tuesdays through Saturdays, 12 noon to 4 p.m. Summer hours for July and August are Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free admission, with donations always welcome.
