The Van Cortlandtville Historical Society is a community organization interested in preserving and honoring the Revolutionary War history of Cortlandt Manor and the surrounding region. The society offers various events throughout the year to involve and teach the community about the region's history. These include the Early School Days program, where historians give fourth grade children from the community the experience of learning in a classroom in the 1840s. Additional events are held throughout the year. Meetings for the society are held on the third Saturday of each month at 2pm.
