The Columbia County Historical Society includes three historic properties as well as a museum and library open to the public.

Open seasonally—all summer and fall—along with the Ichabod Crane Schoolhouse. Tours of the interior are offered seasonally by guided tour. Admissions for the Van Alen House & Ichabod Crane are combined.

​Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1967, the Luykas Van Alen house is a restored house museum representing 18th century rural Dutch farm life in the Hudson River Valley. Also available on the property is the Dutch Farming Heritage Trail linking the Luykas Van Alen property with the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site, 'Lindenwald'.
