HYDE PARK, N.Y. – The Hyde Park Historical Society Museum is now open in the former firehouse located at 4389 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park.

Memorabilia for exhibits has been donated by the townspeople. Included in the exhibit are the voting machine when Franklin Delano Roosevelt voted in 1932 -- with ballot still intact -- when FDR was running against Herbert Hoover and the U.S. Army's MP display of when they were in Hyde Park to protect President Roosevelt. The society welcomes those who served to sign their book and also donate anything they would like to add to their collection.

The F.D. Roosevelt High School yearbooks, "The Orbit," from when the school first opened to the present, are in the society’s library.

The society is currently collecting information from local families that include the name and address of the family when they lived in Hyde Park, what they did, when they came to the town, photographs and family history.

There are also several local history books and matted pen and ink drawings of the former F. D. Roosevelt High School on Haviland Road (now the Haviland Middle School) that are available for purchase.

The museum is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. through the end of October.
