Greater Hudson Heritage Network serves the museum and history communities in New York State as a catalyst to: advance professional standards and practices; build the capacity of organizations to meet their missions, and create a network of effective and professional stewards of regional history and culture - now and in the future. We envision communities that value the exploration and preservation of their heritage and culture, and are empowered to save it for and interpret it to future generations, through the leadership of museums and history organizations.
