Museum board members in front of Quitman House
The Museum of Rhinebeck History is housed in the historic building known as the Quitman House, located 3.5 miles north of the Village of Rhinebeck
at 7015 Rte 9, Rhinebeck, NY 12572.
The Museum’s mission is to collect, catalog and interpret the history of the town. The collection of gifts to the Museum includes letters, books, journals, clothing, furniture, photographs, postcards, and other related artifacts which reveal the life of this community.
Detailed listing and some images of the collection can be found at Consortium of Rhinebeck History.
Some photos in the collection may be viewed at Hudson River Valley Heritage.
Many of the objects are rotated for display from the Museum's permanent collection in its exhibit space.
On special occasions, artifacts have been put on long-term loan to organizations such as the Rhinebeck Reformed Church,
the Chancellor Livingston Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, the Rhinebeck United Methodist Church, and the Dutchess County Fair.
Those loans are renewed yearly. The Museum and the Quitman House have on loan in the front parlor
antiquities from the Robert Sands House through the generosity of Wilderstein.
These objects were given to them by the late Montgomery Anderson, a Sands family descendant.
