The Town of Horicon Historical Society meets the 2nd Monday of each month. 7pm Horicon Community Center. 6604 State Route 8, Brant Lake, NY 12815
Horicon was formed from Bolton and Hague, NY on March 29, 1838. With dense wilderness and multiple waterways it became a lumbering community. Today we celebrate our past, present and future.
The Horicon Museum affords the visitor a look into the past: the early settlers, their homes, churches, industries, boarding houses and special occasions. The displays in the nine room restored 19th century farmhouse show a glimpse into the lives of those living in an earlier time. There are many photographs of the spectacular and beautiful scenery in this Adirondack region, as well as artifacts from early homes and businesses in the area.
