Exhibits at the Chapman Historical Museum

The House

DeLong-House

In summer 2018, the Chapman Museum will experiment with new engaging exhibits in the house once inhabited by the family of Zopher and Catherine DeLong and their eight children.  These exhibits will encourage people to recollect, reflect upon, and share their own histories as well as that of the Glens Falls - Queensbury community.  Included will be activities that explore the themes of home, school and music across generations.

***The House will be closed to the public during the month of June 2018 while we make these changes.***

In 1867, Glens Falls hardware merchant Zopher DeLong remodeled a modest wood frame home on Glen Street, adding the two story brick façade structure with a mansard roof seen by visitors today.  Following Zopher’s death in 1901, his son John took over the home and remodeled it again to reflect his desire for modern tastes and conveniences.
