Welcome to the Town Historian

Renita McGuinness is the current Historian for the Town of Cornwall. Renita is also a member of the Cornwall Historical Society.

Most Cities, Towns, and Villages in New York State appoint an Historian for their community. The position is not an archivist or librarian of information on Cornwall. We do however, offer guidance as to how to research historical questions you might have.

You can contact Renita at historian@cornwallny.gov .

At this time the office is open by appointment only.
