This New York State historic site was built in Schoharie in 1772. The Old Stone Fort was built as a High Dutch (German) Reformed church, but in 1777, with the coming of the Revolutionary War, the church was enclosed within a log stockade. By 1857, the former fort was sold to New York State for $800. It would be used as an armory throughout the Civil War before being turned over to Schoharie County. In 1889, the Schoharie County Historical Society was chartered to operate a museum at the old fort. Today, you can visit their museum and browse a large assortment of artifacts.
