The County Legal History Project of the Historical Society of the New York Courts was launched to document the local legal history of the counties of New York State: the legal figures, cases, and events that helped shape the histories of these places.
This project relies on volunteers to collect, write, and organize the history of their counties. Here we showcase the work that has been completed, and hope that more will be submitted. If you are interested in contributing a history of your county, please contact the Society.
Below is a list of completed county legal histories:
