Heintzelman Library

The Heintzelman Library building was built in 1907 following the fund-raising efforts of Mrs. Emily Heintzelman throughout the town. She donated many books as well to start the library. This building housed the Horicon library from 1907 to 2001, when the library was moved to the Town of Horicon Community Center when it outgrew its space in the small building.

The 1907 building is on the National Register of Historic Places, and currently serves as the office of the Town Historian. It also houses the Adirondack Book Collection, donated by Dr. Randy Ellsworth, which was originally located in the North Warren Central School.
