The building was established in 1871 and continues to enrich the lives of those who use the facilities. The building is also unaltered from its original state and is one of only ten Athenaeums in the United States.

It is open all year round except for Sundays and New Years Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
