Overview

The Town of Webb Historical Association is the home of the Goodsell Museum. We are located in a turn of the century house, which also has a barn and ice house to visit. The Museum have six room which display items showing the history of this area. Most of these exhibits change yearly. On the main floor we have an exhibit of technology as it came to the area. Another room is dedicated to taxidermy. Upstairs is a doctor's office, ca 1950's, a room telling the story of the previous owners, and two other rotating exhibits.

My friend and I enjoyed visiting this museum. There are two floors of exhibits. The woman working the front desk seemed to know a lot about local history and the exhibits. The price is right, too............FREE............but you will be inspired to leave a donation!

This museum is amazing. I have never seen a museum of this small size that has been so artfully curated. You could sense that there was love and respect for the Adirondacks in every exhibit, from the old logger's boots to the antique dentist's chair...More

For a small town this museum is very professional operated. The ground floor exhibit changes about twice a year. If asked staff will explain the current exhibit to you. Free of charge, but donations are welcomed.
