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

The Ichabod Crane Schoolhouse is open seasonally—all summer and fall—along with the Luykas Van Alen House and is self-guided. Admissions for the Van Alen House & Ichabod Crane are combined.

The Ichabod Crane Schoolhouse is a 19th-century building that served as a local single-room public school into the 1940s. Originally located on land at the corner of 9H and Fischer Rd, the school was moved to the Luykas Van Alen house property after the Kinderhook school district centralized, and restored to its 1930s appearance.
