About HRVH

Hudson River Valley Heritage (HRVH) is your gateway to digitized historical resources and online exhibits contributed by members of the Southeastern New York Library Resources Council (Southeastern).

Contributors include libraries, museums, historical societies and other cultural organizations in the following counties: Columbia, Greene, Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan, Rockland, Orange, Putnam and Westchester.

Our members’ online exhibits are hosted here at hrvh.org.

Regional digitized historical newspapers can be searched and browsed at news.hrvh.org.

Our members’ (non-newspaper) digital collections are now part of a state-wide digital library, New York Heritage. At New York Heritage you will discover images, maps, letters, manuscripts, ephemera, oral histories and much more contributed by hundreds of cultural organizations from across the state. New York Heritage is a service of the Empire State Library Network, of which Southeastern is a member.

If you are interested primarily in Hudson River Valley resources, you may begin exploring our region's collections in NY Heritage from our HRVH Collections page or our HRVH Browse page.
