Brookside Museum - one of the oldest buildings in the Village of Ballston Spa, NY.
Background: The mission of the museum and research center is to preserve, interpret and disseminate the story, history and records of New York State’s military forces and veterans.
Notable artifacts from this conflict include Colonel Elmer Ellsworth’s (the Union’s first martyr) uniform, the medical kit of Jubal Early’s surgeon, and the uniform and bugle of Gustav Schurmann (General Philip Kearny’s boy bugler).
Included in the museum are significant holdings relating to New York’s 27th Division in World War I and World War II and notable state military regiments such as the 7th (Silk Stocking Regiment), 69th (Fighting Irish), 71st, and 369th (Harlem Hell fighters) New York Infantry.
The collection is divided into the museum and the library/archives holdings.
Begun in 1863, the collection has not had a secure, permanent home until the Governor announced in 2001 that the historic armory in Saratoga Springs, NY would be renovated to house the collection.
The Rochester area has been the birthplace to such corporations as Kodak, Bausch & Lomb, Gleason and Xerox that conduct extensive research and manufacturing in the fields of industrial and consumer products.
The National Historic Landmark building was originally built in 1881 by George Post as the Long Island Historical Society.
