Worked/Wild is an award-winning exhibition featuring thought-provoking materials designed to spark visitors’ awareness of how the Adirondack landscape has determined the path of its human history. Complex themes and differing perspectives of the meaning of “worked” and “wild” compel visitors to explore the multifaceted relationships of our region and its people. Rather than being a nostalgic, object-based display, Worked/Wild is an interactive multimedia experience. Community members contributed to this exhibit; their unique perspectives helped shape this reflection of the people, environment, and social structure of Essex County and the Adirondack region. Features Small Farm Rising film.
The Adirondack History Museum is home to the Essex County Historical Society, an organization dedicated to the ever-evolving interpretation of Adirondack history so as to inspire reflection, scholarship and comprehension of the land and its inhabitants. We strive to serve as an authentic presentation of the human face of the Adirondacks through our diverse collections, exhibits, and education outreach programs.
