The Caroga Museum in New York State’s Adirondack Park is comprised of a charming old farm house, an exhibit barn, a general store, a cobbler’s shop, an ice house, and the most recent addition, Sherman’s Park Arcade.

The Caroga Historical Association was born on the coattails of the 1976 national bicentennial which provided momentum for the 1977 opening of a town museum housed in rented quarters.

In 1981, the Association purchased the present museum site from a fourth-generation settler in Caroga. The Caroga Historical Association is a non-profit organization chartered by the New York State Education Department.

Continued dedicated efforts on the part of its friends and supporters have made the Caroga Historical Museum a focal point in promoting and preserving the heritage of the Township of Caroga.

Concert at the Glove Theatre, Gloversville

Artist in Residence Concert – CLMF makes its debut in the historic 1914 Glove Theatre. After saving the building from becoming a parking lot in 1995, a group of dedicated individuals set out to restore it as a theater. The news of the Glove’s rebirth generated a burst of community enthusiasm. Money was raised to stabilize the structure and throughout the last decade, volunteers have continued to work diligently to restore the Glove to its former prominence.
