Hurley Heritage Society [NY]

The Hurley Heritage Society seeks to preserve and share the history of Hurley, New York. To this end, the society operates a museum of local history, located within the 1790 Col. Jonathan Elmendorf House. Main Street is a Historic Landmark District, containing six of Hurley's stone houses built between the late 1600s and 1818; and is used during guided tours to discuss local Dutch heritage.

The society offers exhibits, monthly guided walking tours of Main Street, guided group tours of individual stone houses, and a self-guided driving tour of the area. Reservations are required for stone house tours.
