AARCH is headquartered in historic Keeseville, New York, in the former company offices of the Ausable Horse Nail Factory. The complex of stone buildings that once its operations is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a rare surviving group of mid-19th century, water-powered, industrial buildings. The factory was at the heart of Keeseville’s booming horse nail manufacturing industry.
AARCH purchased and beautifully renovated the Main Street building in 2006, and it now houses the organization’s offices, a research library, gallery space and residential apartment. Please stop by and visit us if you are in the area. Keeseville has many historic homes and features to see on a self-guided walking tour.
In 2008, AARCH bought the stone factory building erected on the Ausable River in 1849 and is now working on plans to restore and re-use it for commercial development.
