Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Zadock Pratt Museum is the storied home of patriot, tanner, and US Congressman Zadock Pratt Jr. (1790-1871). Located in Prattsville—the town Pratt founded in 1824—the two-story, five-bay, Federal-style house was built in 1828 and opened as a museum dedicated to exhibiting the history and culture of the Northern Catskill Region in 1959. Although Hurricane Irene damaged the site and much of its collection of original papers and furniture in 2011, the home has since been restored and reopened for curated period exhibits, guided tours, and special events. (518) 299-3395.
