"Historic Cherry Hill will be a vibrant community anchor, a recognized research center, and a focal point of heritage tourism."


We know you share the vision...let's make it happen together. Your continued support propels us forward, funding the staff needed to meet audience demand, bringing curriculum-aligned enrichment opportunities to high-need students, and preserving the collections that are at the core of all our programs.


We hope all your dreams come true this holiday season. Your donation now will help to ensure that our community-focused vision- our shared dream, if you will- comes true as well.




Collection Connection

As the $2 million restoration of Albany's best documented historic site speeds toward the finish line, Historic Cherry Hill has launched the Collection Connection paver campaign.  Your paver will join others in improving access to the Edward Frisbee Center for Collections & Research and better connect it with the collections exhibited in the 1787 historic structure.  The Frisbee Center is home to 70,000 objects and documents directly related to the Van Rensselaer family, and together with the furnishings on display in the house, the two facilities attract a growing number of local, national, and international researchers.

Use the landscape of one of Albany's treasured historic sites to celebrate, memorialize, or give a gift to loved ones.  Or let the world know about your favorite Cherry Hill object, story, family member, feature or historical snippet!  Your support through the purchase of a brick (or two!) will help complete the restoration effort and grand re-opening to the public in 2018.
