1915: Life in the Town of New Scotland
The New Scotland Museum’s new exhibit celebrates 100 years of the Voorheesville Public Library, and also chronicles life in the town during the years 1915-1920. A large banner that once hung in the Red Men hall, donated by Earl MacIntosh, greets every visitor. The Red Men were a very active association in the town, and the history of this organization is depicted in photos and medals. Photos and literature are on display showing the history of the Voorheesville Methodist Church, celebrating its 200th year this year. The diorama built by Robert Shedd is displayed, depicting Voorheesville in 1920, plus many more objects, articles of clothing, photos and literature are on display.Details
The Mynderse-Frederick House was built in 1802 by Nicholas Mynderse, a merchant from Schenectady, who operated an inn and a tavern. In 1803, Nicholas Mynderse was elected the first supervisor for the newly-formed town of Guilderland, which was previously part of Watervliet.
Mynderse served as Town Supervisor for one year. He died in the 1820s and the Guilderland Center property was purchased by Michael Frederick, a descendent of one of the area's early settlers. The house was used as a tavern until 1900 and remained a private family residence until 1940.Details
