Welcome to the Nelson Winters Library... Nelson was one of the first museum curators and he was instrumental in developing this library for original photographs, years of newspaper clippings, directories, pamphlets, photographs, posters and anything that might be valuable to someone, someday. Our technology runs the gamut from a card index to the Internet... scrapbooks to microfiche... typewriter to computer.

The museum is in the process of rolling out wireless Internet access throughout the museum. When this project is in place, the library will be equipped with a microfilm reader, a typewriter and wireless Internet access to millions of pages about Gouverneur history. Patrons are also encouraged to telephone the museum and our volunteers can assist you.

When you visit, don't forget to say, "hello" to Adélaide de Flahaut (1761-1836). She was Gouverneur Morris' mistress and her portrait, by local artist, Elizabeth Gleason, presides over the library. Click the portrait, above, to see it closer.
