Alice T. Miner Museum
Located in Chazy, New York, the Alice T. Miner Museum is housed in a historic home that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. William and Alice T. Miner lived in the house and in 1924 it became a museum dedicated to the Colonial Revival movement, which arose in the 1800s (before the Civil War) and as the United States was becoming a global power. The collection includes numerous artifacts such as chinaware, period furniture, and porcelain and glass objects.
