For the northern quarter of the State, may I suggest the Adirondack Museum
in Blue Mountain Lake? While the folks there concentrate on the mountains,
the 1870's were a time of great change in the wilderness that
coicided/were a part of the changes in the broader society.

Also, if you are on a limited budget, may I suggest that explore joining a
museum that is part of a consortia that has reciprocal admission
