Welcome to the Historic Amsterdam League (HAL) web site. The Historic Amsterdam League was established in July of 2010 in conjunction with the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the 1885 chartering of the City of Amsterdam, N.Y.  HAL is a nonprofit and nonpartisan citizen based organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and protection of the physical, cultural, and natural heritage of the City of Amsterdam N. Y.

Please take a few minutes to explore our site – learn a bit more about our city and its past, view the photo, postcard, and newspaper clipping galleries, drop us a note, ask us a question, post a comment to one of the stories or articles, check out the latest forum threads, explore the links - and make yourself at home.  If you like what you see and believe that history and heritage aren’t just what happened yesterday, but are the road that led us to where we are today and the path that can show us the way to tomorrow, consider joining us on that journey - we’d be honored to welcome you as HAL’s newest member!


Please note that our website is a work in progress and new features will continue to be added as they are completed.
