Directions to the CHS Meeting House

The Canaan Historical Society’s Meeting House is a former Presbyterian church, located at 13 Warner Crossing Road in Canaan, NY. The photo header at the top of the page shows what you’ll see to the left (probably without the picturesque farm equipment) as you head downhill on County Route 5 toward Warner Crossing Road.

COMING FROM MASSACHUSETTS:
From Route 41 in Richmond MA, turn west where the sign points you toward NYS Route 295. Proceed for about 4.8 miles until you reach the flashing yellow light at County Route 5 in Canaan. At the light, turn left (downhill) onto Route 5 and continue for 1.9 miles. The Meeting House will be visible on the left at the bottom of the hill. Turn left from Route 5 onto Warner Crossing Road, park alongside the road, and come on in.
Or…
Heading west on Route 20: Come through New Lebanon, NY (going straight through the flashing yellow light at Route 22, and passing the Catholic church and shrine on the right) until you reach the sign for New Lebanon Center. Shortly after the sign, turn left onto County Route 5. Be sure to stop at the flashing red light at Route 295 when you reach Canaan (dangerous intersection), before continuing on Route 5. About 1.9 miles from the light at 295, just over  six miles from Route 20, you’ll see the Meeting House on the left. Turn left onto Warner Crossing Road, park alongside the road, and come right in.

COMING EAST ON ROUTE 20 from Albany or Troy or parts west: Turn right in New Lebanon Center onto County Route 5. About 4.2 miles later, be sure to stop at the flashing red light at Route 295 in Canaan (dangerous intersection) before continuing on Route 5. Approximately 1.9 miles from the light at 295, just over  six miles from Route 20, you’ll see the Society’s Meeting House on the left. Turn left onto Warner Crossing Road, park alongside the road, and be welcome!

COMING EAST ON ROUTE 295 from Chatham or Hudson: After leaving Chatham, pass by the entrances for the Taconic Parkway, and go through East Chatham, and continue into Canaan. After passing the town garage on the right, and then the post office on the left, watch for the flashing yellow light 4/10 mile ahead. At the light turn right (downhill) onto County Route 5. Proceed for 1.9 miles; where Route 5 makes a sharp turn to the right, turn left onto Warner Crossing Road, park alongside the road in front of the Meeting House, and come right in.
