DESCRIPTION

Located on Main Street in Hurleyville, NY,

the museum building was formerly the Hurleyville School.

The original structure was built in 1912.

The Gymnasium was added to the back of the building in 1929-30

and the elevator was added to the front of the building  in 1990-91.

The last class graduated from the Hurleyville High School in 1945

when county schools were centralized, eliminating the need for small community schools.

In 1971 the building was acquired for use as a county museum.

The Sullivan County Museum houses

The Sullivan County Historical Society

The Catskill Art Society

The Frederick A. Cook Society

The Dramatic Workshop

The Judge Lawrence Cook Room

The displays, library, archives and historical rooms are designed, constructed, decorated and maintained

by volunteer members of the Sullivan County Historical Society.
