Description:


The Lincoln Depot Foundation, Inc. has been charged with creating a museum at the old rail depot at Water and Centre Streets in Peekskill, New York to illuminate President Abraham Lincoln's relationships with the political, financial, industrial and military leaders of New York before and during the Civil War.  The mission of The Lincoln Depot Museum is to explore this fascinating time in our region's history through educational programs and outreach, collections and exhibits, reenactments and presentations.  

The curatorial and design phase of the Museum's build out have been underway since mid-2013 with the inaugural exhibition slated for September 2014.  The opening show will be comprised on items from the museum's permanent collection, as well as items on loan from The Peekskill Museum and The Brian D. Caplan Collection.
