"Supporting Rhinebeck History"

Founded in 1967 through the efforts of Dewitt Gurnell, the society seeks to preserve the history and character of the village and town of Rhinebeck. 


The Rhinebeck Historical Society archives is a treasure trove of exciting history.  It consists of the usual town hall records dating back to 1700's but also books, pictures, maps, charts and hardware.  There are other sites within the Consortium of Rhinebeck History that offer additional materials.  Check out our links box also.
