The Old Stone Fort Museum Complex located in the village of Schoharie was originally a Reformed Dutch Church when first built in 1772, but during the Revolutionary War a log stockade was built around it. A cannonball hole from a skirmish with Mohawk Captain, Joseph Brant and British Loyalists is still evident in a cornice at the rear of the building. In 1857 it was sold to the State of New York but was again used as an armory during the Civil War. Finally in 1888 the Schoharie County Historical Society turned it into a museum and an entire complex of historical structures has grown up around it. Tour the museum complex to see the 1792 William Badgely House and carriage house, the 1830 Jackson Law Office, the Oliver one-room schoolhouse, the Warner House, a Greek Revival structure, and the Schaeffer-Ingold Dutch barn. A research library is also located here and is available to genealogists and historians. The museum complex is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is open from May through October. Check the website for hours. There is an entrance fee.
