The Consortium of Rhinebeck History is a group of organizations whose archives contain collections relating to Rhinebeck history. It is dedicated to the preservation and care of the various collections and to creating an index of the collections to promote public accessibility. The Consortium is administered by the Quitman Resource Center for Preservation. The Quitman House is located on Route 9, Rhinebeck, NY north of Route 9-G & the Old Stone Church. It includes the Museum of Rhinebeck History which is open June-October Saturdays and Sundays, 2-4 P.M.

In May 2000, the Thomas Thompson Trust presented a grant to the Consortium to enable the gathering of information for the database and to provide archival storage materials for some of the member organizations. The Chancellor Livingston Chapter of the DAR, the Rhinebeck Historical Society and the Museum of Rhinebeck History are currently completing their listings for the database. Periodic updates are planned.

The link here to a sample file supplies a catalog of the Town Historian’s Records. More listings are planned in the near future. The present Rhinebeck Town Historian, Nancy V. Kelly may be contacted at for more information about the Consortium or the database.

RHINEBECK TOWN HISTORIAN’S RECORDS - a collection of documents and maps assembled by former Town Historian Dewitt Gurnell.
