Since its founding in 1804, the New-York Historical Society (N-YHS) has been a mainstay of cultural life in New York City and a center of historical scholarship and education. For generations, students and teachers have been able to benefit directly from the N-YHS's mission to collect, preserve and interpret materials relevant to the history of our city, state and nation.

N-YHS consistently creates opportunities to experience the nation's history through the prism of New York. Our uniquely integrated collection of documents and objects are particularly well-suited for educational purposes, not only for scholars but also for school children, teachers and the larger public.
