An official Path Through History Site! In 1854 Dr. Henry Foster, who was the founder of the Clifton Springs Water Cure, which has become our modern hospital, built the Foster Cottage which now is the home of the Clifton Springs Historical Society. The Society is dedicated to preserving and sharing the story of Clifton Springs Village, its` people and the early Water Cure. The Foster Cottage along with the other buildings on Main Street give a realistic view of what the village looked like at the turn of the 19th century. The museum has several displays showing the many aspects of Dr. Foster's life, the local nursing school (1894-1934) and items of past local businesses. There is also a room dedicated to local individuals who served our country in several branches of our Armed Forces. A pictorial time line shows the changes of the village from 1850 to 2000 when the Clifton Springs Hospital celebrated it's 150th anniversary. The Museum is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
