History Historic sites are an ever-present part of the landscape. Not only can you step back in time, you can choose which time; early Dutch and Quaker days, Colonial or Gilded Age, or the early 20th century and the World War II era of FDR. Our history museums have great stories to tell, from the daily life in a Dutch Colonial homestead, to the history of WWI and barnstorming-era airplanes. Be part of the scene at the Little Red School House, a 1914 railroad station, or the FDR Presidential Library.
