The Samuel de Champlain History Center has received a grant for $2,500 from the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership. The grant will fund the digital dissemination of material in the Center’s Franco-American Collection.
The collection, one-of-a-kind in New York State, is composed of materials reflecting the history and culture of French settlers in upstate New York and Vermont.
The Samuel de Champlain History Center is located in the Village of Champlain in the historic former First National Bank of Champlain building at 202 Elm Street. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and New York State provisionally chartered museum that seeks to preserve the Village and Town of Champlain’s history and promote awareness of French settlement in the United States.
