History: The land and an endowment of $10,000 to construct a library and museum of natural history were gifted to the town of Westfield by Aaron Charles Hitchcock.  Hitchcock was born in Westfield on July 19, 1823.  He became a successful business man and large land owner in Orleans County.    The building was completed in 1899.  Aaron Hitchcock died on March 1, 1900.  The museum and library continue as a monument to his memory, generosity and interest in the youth and citizens of Westfield.
