Victorian Living Room

When the colony that is now New York State established its first twelve counties in 1683, the present Sullivan County was part of Ulster County. In 1809, Sullivan County was split from Ulster County.

In the late 19th century, the Industrial Revolution and the advent of factories driven by water power along the streams and rivers led to an increase in population attracted to the jobs. Hamlets enlarged into towns. 

Lifestyle and Household furniture and neccesaties have changed a lot since the days the county was formed.

This Exhibit will show what the typical home life was like with displays of Furniture, stoves, clothing and what home life was like for the average resident of Sullivan County over the year.
