Archives and Museum

In the summer of 2017, The Museum in the Streets© was unveiled. The Museum in the Streets© is a walking tour of Altamont. It is part of an international heritage program. By following the map, visitors can learn some of the history of the village. At each location, the panel presents an archival image and the historical significance of the location. There are two large panels depicting the entire walking tour map, one located in Orsini Park and the other on the corner of Gun Club Road and Route 146 just outside the Village.

Copies of the Walking Tour Map are available at the Village Offices, The Altamont Free Library, and at select local businesses.

The installation of the Museum in the Streets© was made possible by grants from the Hudson River Valley Greenway and Assemblymember Patricia Fahey. Generous donations were received from Jeff Thomas, Stewart's Shops, CMFox Remedies, the Cure family, Sundown Lawn and Landscape, Altamont Community Tradition and the Village of Altamont's Roger Keenholts Fund. The Village of Altamont wishes to thank the property owners for their support and cooperation; Ron Ginsburg, Photographer; Keith C. Lee, Researcher; Marijo Dougherty, Archives Curator and Spanish Consultant Teresa Wood-Irvin for their contributions in making this project possible. The Museum in the Streets© project was proposed and implemented by James M. Gaughan, Mayor, 2005-2017.
