The Brookside Museum offers a colorful source of local history. The museum offers books about town history and there are paintings from a local painting for sale. The Saratoga County Fair Grounds are located just up the road and the Fair runs during the 3rd week of July and a good time to visit.

This is a small local museum with quirky and interesting exhibits. Its a nice place to visit if on a day to Ballston spa. It wont take all day as its not that big but if you like local history you will love this place.
