Cooperstown
“Lying as it does, off the great routes, the Village of
Cooperstown is less known than it deserves to be. Few persons
visit it, without acknowledging the beauties of its natural
scenery, and the greatness and decency of the place itself.”
James Fenimore Cooper, ‘The Chronicles of Cooperstown,’ 1838
Cooperstown Then and Now
When Cooperstown’s first log
cabin went up in 1769, the
village-to-be could have been
described as a diamond in the
rough. Even approaching our
third century, Cooperstown
is little changed from that
early diamond. We’ve not
quite finished polishing it and
probably never will. Visit us
today and you’ll discover a
gem of a village in a gorgeous
setting. And everywhere you
look there are different facets
that sparkle in intriguing ways.
new facets to our village.
We’re here all year round,
with four distinct seasons of
excitement and interest for
friends, couples, and families.
The real Cooperstown is
more subtle, more beautiful,
more timeless and much
more memorable than a
photograph can render.
Come see for yourself.
In these pages you’ll learn a
bit about the Cooperstown that gave birth to the Deerslayer
and enshrined the greatness of The Babe, that welcomed
Grandma Moses and celebrated Winslow Homer, that honored
Abner Doubleday with a ball field and remembers native tribes
with Council Rock, that nurtured the families who invented
Budweiser beer and those that made Singer sewing machines a
household staple. You’ll hear about it first hand, from some
of Cooperstown’s fewer than 3,000 residents, and from some
of the tens of thousands of visitors who are welcomed here
each year.
Wherever you come from, our village will make you feel
that you belong here. In fact, the people whose voices are
raised in these pages couldn’t be more different from each
other, yet Cooperstown offers an authentic and fulfilling
experience for each.
Will Cooperstown be as special for you?

“My own tiny, lovely village with great old mansions and a glorious
lake, my own grand little hamlet where everyone knows your name,
but with elaborate little frills that make it unlike anywhere else.”

My tiny hometown looms huge

you’re raised in such an eerily beautiful
place, one filled with museums and
green lawns and a quiet lake, it is easy
to take such overwhelming charm for
granted. As children we did our share
of complaining. The town was too
busy in the summer, too empty in the
winter: we had nothing to do except
go to the gym and shoot hoops and
feel envious of kids in bigger places.

A Bold Experiment:
The Lifemasks of J.H.I. Browere
In the early 1800s the artist John Henri Isaac Browere aspired
to create a portrait gallery of national heroes. Through a process
of casting the faces of living people, Browere made lifemasks of
famous men and women. Browere worked nearly 50 years after
the signing of the Declaration of Independence and captured
the likenesses of the Revolutionary War generation just as age
and time were taking their toll. While the technique for making
lifemasks dates back to the time of the Pharaohs, Browere’s
great success was due to his invention of a quick drying, lighter
plaster that did not flatten his subject’s features. Twenty-one
of the surviving plasters were replicated in bronze in 1940.
The Process
Browere first spread oil over the subject’s face, head, and
neck. If only the head and neck were to be cast, the subject
was seated. If the torso was to be included in the cast, the
subject reclined. Straws were inserted in the subject’s nostrils
and thin coats of plaster were applied with the sculptor’s
fingers. As each coat hardened, a fresh coat was applied.
When the plaster was nearly dry, it was removed in pieces with
a chisel and mallet.
Browere reassembled
the pieces of the
negative mask and
poured a plaster
positive mask. He
then sculpted the
eyes, which were
closed during
casting, and attached
the positive mask
to a plaster bust.
Hair and costumes
were sculpted last.
Giant hoax, you climb the mountain to
visit Natty Bumppo’s cave, you know
where General Clinton built and broke
his dam during the Revolutionary War,
and even come to understand baseball
deeply, even if you have never actually sat
through an entire game (call me guilty).
If you’re especially credulous, you may
remember all those campfire stories of our
lake monster and feel a little frisson when
you fall off your water-skis in the summer.
This wild alchemy of history and
legend was the best element imaginable
to spark an imagination alive. Now,
when I visit, I am usually overcome
by the force of Cooperstown’s stories
and its beauty; nowadays, I only feel a
tremendous gratitude that I was able
to share in it for as long as I have.

Museum. Photo by Rebecca D.M. Todd
“I was taken in by Browere. He said his operation would
be of about 20 minutes…. I submitted therefore without
inquiry but it was a bold experiment on his part…. He
suffered the plaster to get so dry that separation became
difficult and even dangerous. He was obliged to use freely
the mallet and chisel…. The family became alarmed, and
he confused ‘til I was quite exhausted…. I now bid adieu
forever to busts and even portraits.” – Thomas Jefferson

Otsego Lake the Centerpiece
of Year-Round Recreation
“Some guys put a little anise in
their bait because, believe it or not,
the fish can smell it.”
Cooperstown’s Charlie Coleman has been
ice fishing for 65 years, since his father first
introduced him at age 12 to the endeavor
that is as much a culture as it is a sport.
“When you’re out on the ice, it’s beautiful.
Most of the time, it’ll be spitting snow
and the wind will be blowing, so you
hurry to your shanty. But every once
in a while, you get a starlit night, and
it’s like another world out there.
“I started when I was 12 and I went out with
my father and his friends. By the time I was
in high school, I knew all the old timers who
were getting along in age, and they’d ask me
to help them with their shanties. Those guys
guarded their shanties pretty jealously, and
if anyone got too close, they were likely to
holler. So it was a real privilege to be asked
to help, and I learned a lot from them. I built
my own shanty and fished the way they did.
“People think you freeze out there, but the
hardest part is walking to the shanty. Today,
they use portable tents, but back then you
built your own shanty from wood and moved
it out on the ice. Inside, you’d have a wood
or pot-bellied stove not much bigger than
my TV set, and you’d have to take your
coat off in there because it got too hot.
“Once you got inside, you’d cut your hole
in the ice. We used a chisel called a spud
back then, but today we use power tools
and chainsaws. It’s much more efficient.
“After you have your hole cut, you bait
the bottom of it. Most guys used cut-up
scallops or cat food with seafood in it or
chunks of haddock – of course it wasn’t as
expensive then as it is today. Some guys
put a little anise in their bait because,
believe it or not, the fish can smell it.
Having baited, you’d drop down your line.
“We caught mostly lake bass and cisco.
Back then there was no limit. Guys

OTSEGO BASS
Today, anglers and ice fishers on Otsego Lake are likely
to land lake trout, cisco, and landlocked salmon. But there
was a time, not that long ago, when the lake was known
for one thing: Otsego bass. Also called a humpback or
greyback, Otsego bass are a lake whitefish that used to
be both plentiful in the deep Otsego Lake waters and
prized for their taste at the dinner table. Today, catching
an Otsego bass is a rarity.
Their numbers have severely
diminished thanks to natural
competition with cisco for
food. The illegal introduction
of alewives also has taken a toll
on the fish. But ask anyone who
has spent years dropping lines

Island or Hyde Bay, you’ll hear
all about the Otsego bass.

“The Today’s Game exhibit represents
part of our ability to preserve history
as it happens,” says Hall of Fame
director of public relations, Brad Horn.
“Visitors come expecting to see the
past but they’re pleasantly surprised
to see the present. It’s great when we
are able to put a piece on display in a
month or weeks after it happened.”
No matter what opinions
baseball fans have about
Bonds and his controversial
pursuit of Aaron’s all-time
mark, it was the biggest
story in baseball. And
when Bonds surpassed
Aaron, he donated the
batting helmets he wore.
The pair of helmets now

The Otesaga Hotel, built in 1909, was
designed by architect Percy Griffin,
renowned for grand, neo-Georgian row
houses in New York City. Of its time,
the Otesaga was considered a marvel,
not just of architectural achievement,
but also of engineering. With massive
30-foot columns gracing the imposing
front portico and over 400 windows that
make benefit of the 700 feet of lakefront,
the Otesaga was regailed in the local
paper at the time: “No more fortunate
location could have been chosen for
a hotel. From its windows and broad
veranda, a view as charming as the Divine
Hand ever painted fills the eye, while
refreshing breezes from over the gentle
waters fan the brow.” The Otesaga has
been named to the prestigious Historic
Hotels of America by the National

“One of the three or four
great buildings in America
of its time.”
Brendan Gill on Hyde Hall
“Fortunately, for those of us who have learned to
cherish America’s past and who seek to preserve
as much evidence as possible of its activities, the
Clarke family, builders of Hyde Hall, derived their
customs (as well as much of their immense fortune)
from English sources rather than American ones;
far from forgetting the past, the Clarkes took care
generation after generation to hand down not only
their enviable material possessions – land, houses,
furnishings, works of art and the like – but also a
mass of documents concerning the acquisition and
disposition of these possessions. Thanks to their
husbanding of scraps of paper that, in other families
served to light fires, students of the eighteenth- and
19th-century American history will be mining
the Clarke minutiae well into the 21st century.”
An author and critic, primarily on architecture,
Brendan Gill wrote for The New Yorker magazine
for more than 60 years. A champion of architectural
preservation and other visual arts, he chaired The
Preservation League of New York State and the Andy
Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and authored
15 books, including Here At The New Yorker (1975,
Random House). Brendan Gill died in 1997.

fascinating stories behind the landmarks
emerged; stories about the people that
have been at the core of Cooperstown
over the last 220 years; William, James
and Susan Fenimore Cooper, the Clark
family, Adolphus Busch, Samuel Nelson,
Ralph Birdsall and scores more.
“Henry Phinney, for example, was a publisher
of newspapers, almanacs and Bibles, who
erected the 1816 Federal style building that is
now The Cooper Inn. There is a famous story,
famous even in its own time, of a printing
error in his almanac that predicted snow in
Cooperstown on July 4th. He became the
laughing stock of the
community. Strangely,
that year Cooperstown
experienced an
unusual cold spell
early in July. And on
the 4th a Canadian
front moved across
Lake Ontario – it was
cold enough that the
precipitation included
a few flakes, enough to restore and even
grow the publisher’s damaged reputation.
“For me, stories like this add to the charm of
living in Cooperstown, a town that has been
lovingly preserved through the shepherding
of the Clark family and others. I first came
here just after I turned seven in the summer of
1945 with my Mom, Dad, and older brother.
I spent the next 15 summers here at Camp
Chenango and built 15 years of wonderful
memories:
hiking up
to Natty
Bumppo’s
cave and Leatherstocking Falls, canoeing
down the first 35 miles of the Susquehanna
River, watching the sun go down while
listening to a loon’s low call, taking the
stern-wheel boat into town to see the Hall
of Fame game, riding horseback over the old
Iroquois trails, visiting the Busch hop farm
and sharing an ice cream cone with Carl
Erskine, Ralph Branca and Carl Furillo on
Main Street. It was inevitable that I would
make my home here, put my
own stamp on this glorious
Cooperstown architecture.”

“Inspiration for my painting comes from
the kind of raw beauty that I find in the
rolling hills surrounding Cooperstown.
It comes from meandering brooks
and golden streams. And from my
experience of a genuine rural life, with
rural values. I often envision the huge
vistas and the birds-eye views spanning
over the valleys of Cooperstown and
Otsego Lake to create my paintings.
Water has been a theme throughout my
painting career, and Glimmerglass has been
a treasured influence. This grand body of
water is not only visually stunning, but is
full of historic richness, local culture and
tradition. Otsego Lake can be center stage,
as when the canoe regatta is raced each
year, or it can be the marvelous background
to a gala at Hyde Hall or an afternoon
picnic on its glacial carved shoreline.
“The town too, has a
unique visual integrity.
On my first trip,
traveling through
the countryside into
Cooperstown, I recall not
being prepared for what I
was about to discover. It struck me as a town
suspended in time; if the automobiles were
removed from the streets of Cooperstown,
Main Street would be nearly what it looked
like over a hundred years ago. Picturesque
historic homes, shops, and community
buildings seem to have been untouched by
the industrial revolution. I take these cultural
“pieces” of the village and place them within
my artwork, many times without even
knowing I have. My visions and experiences
of Cooperstown have multifaceted meanings
that reveal themselves in each new painting.”

people who love it gather at the Susquehanna Valley Garlic
Festival. Now in its eighth year, this festival features music,
children’s activities, lectures, demonstrations and, naturally,
plenty of culinary artistry featuring locally grown garlic.
Organizer Marybeth Vargha says growers come to the festival
with many varieties of garlic grown in Upstate New York. In
comparison to supermarket garlic, much of which comes from
California, New York garlic is distinctively flavorful and robust.
“It’s more like garlic grown in Russia or cold European
climates. It has a stronger, better flavor,” she says.

Performing arts in and around Cooperstown lend themselves
to audiences with both classic and more eclectic tastes,
in music, in dance, in theatre and spectacle. In a typical
summer, there may be Morris dancing, or swing dancing, or
line dancing, or salsa dancing, or a gorgeous ballet; straight
theater, music theater, or puppet theater; the Cooperstown

Gerry Holzman is the creator
and head carver of The Empire
State Carousel, an intricate, whimsical,
hand-carved merry-go-round, dedicated
to the legends and history of New York
State, that is part of The Farmers’
Museum in Cooperstown.
“Twenty-four years ago, sitting on
the sun porch of our Civil War-era
farmhouse, the idea first came to
me to build a carousel that evoked
the colorful history of New York.
Then I took an important step. I
opened the notion up to all who were
interested. Volunteers gravitated to
the project, offering up more ideas
than a dog in a butcher shop. More
important, they had the talent and
dedication to make those ideas
come alive. Woodcarvers, painters,
quilters, mechanics and wellwishers; for more than two decades,
volunteers worked to bring The Empire
State Carousel to life. Their dedication, and
the generosity of spirit which it implies,
made the many disparate pieces of the
carousel come together so harmoniously,
into a delightful accolade to our State.
(18)
“... pieces of our past that we
have thought worthy…”
“Many stories went into the making of
this merry-go-round and many more are
reflected in the details that evolved over the
years. There are 24 different riding animals,
a menagerie of domestic and wild creatures
that populate New York, sporting colorful
regalia that reveals each figure’s personality
and, if you know where to look, perhaps
some clue of the maker as well. Freddie de
Frogge is one of my favorites, inspired by my
college days. Freddie is my homage to lost
youth and innocence, sporting a cardigan
sweater, white bucks, khakis and argyle
socks and carrying his magnum opus, A
Gourmet’s Guide to Entomology. A symbol of
the Adirondacks, Louie Loon is a
beautiful carving. It was created by a
determined group of North Country
artisans and donated to the carousel
in memorial to a fellow carver who
died before it was completed. And the
gorgeous animals are surrounded by
the carousel’s other unique features –
the rounding boards, portrait panels,
pennants, sweeps, the magnificent
band organ. Each a testament to
the people, the events, the folklore
and symbols that together form this
arbitrary collection of pieces of our
past that we have thought worthy of
passing on to our grandchildren.
“I couldn’t be happier that The
Empire State Carousel has found its way
to Cooperstown. It is nestled in an idyllic
setting at The Farmers’ Museum, where it
can be enjoyed by visitors who appreciate the
dedication to craft and the commitment of
years that turned some basswood into magic.”

The Farmers’ Museum is one of the country’s oldest rural history
museums, offering an authentic view of life in the village and on the farm
in mid-19th-century New York. Demonstrations and interpretive exhibits
reveal the secrets of traditional crafts, medicinal treatments, decorative
arts, and the tricky tending of hearth and field. Beautifully situated
overlooking Otsego Lake, the museum contains a variety of experiences;
of historic village architecture and activity, including the Middlefield Print
Shop, Bump Tavern, Todd’s General Store and the country’s only block
press wallpaper workshop – the American Paper-Staining Manufactory;
of tending to the heritage breeds and gardens, milking and shearing and
feeding the young animals; of whimsy and wonder at the Country Fair
and The Empire State Carousel. There are thousands of stories unfolding
at the museum each day, yet it can easily be enjoyed in an afternoon.
In Cooperstown, history isn’t
academic. It’s lively and mysterious and
delightful and comes in all forms.
“Everybody calls me Charlie. My family has
run small businesses here and in Cooperstown
since just after the Civil War. This waterpowered cider mill dates back to 1856, and I
took it over in the 1960s. My son and his wife
run it now, their kids work in
it, and we hope it stays in the
family for generations to come.
“Sweet cider was once the most
popular upstate drink because
it was healthy and tasty, easy
to come by, and affordable too.
Before pasteurization it was
often stored in ice caves after
the harvest season. Hard cider and apple
wines were other ways of preserving cider
between harvests. In early times, hard cider
and apple wines also were safe beverages that
took the place of questionable water, and they
were easier to make than beer, which played
the same role. Today the mill
makes cider, hard cider, fruit
wine, fudge, fresh breads,
and all sorts of other foods.
“The mill is more than a bit of living
history. Every small upstate town once
had a wood mill, a grist mill, and a
cider mill, sometimes one and the same
business. Our entire family is satisfied
keeping our part of that tradition alive.”

A son of Wisconsin brews
Belgian-style beers
in historic hops country
Photo by Philip Scalia
Randy Thiel has been brewmaster
since Ommegang opened in 1997.
In 2005, Randy became the first
American brewer inducted as a
Knight of the Belgian Brewers
Guild, in Brussels, Belgium. He
reluctantly responds to Sir Randy.
“I grew up in the town of
New Holstein, Wisconsin, so it wasn’t a huge change to come
to Cooperstown. Both have beautiful rolling farmland, lots of
dairy cows, and not coincidentally, a long connection to brewing.
While Wisconsin is filled with Germanic brewing history,
Cooperstown is central to where the American brewing industry
grew all its hops up through the 19th-century. Fortunes were
made on hops and names like Busch were common locally.
“Hop growing eventually moved west, but local brewing remained.
Today, three breweries are nearby. Ours, Brewery Ommegang, is
unique in that we brew only Belgian-style beers, using Belgian-
inspired recipes, and Belgian
brewing methods. Why did we
decide to brew Belgian-style beers
in Cooperstown? For one thing,
this area was once known as New
Belgium, and even today there
are plenty of local families with
Belgian and Dutch roots. Another
reason is this is a beautiful area that draws many year-round visitors.
We like to think people come looking for exquisite rural beauty
and the best of baseball, and also happily discover excellent beer.
“Visitors to the brewery learn all about Belgian-style brewing,
about our brewery, and about local brewing history. We offer
free tours and tastings every day, and everyone is welcome.
“That’s another reason why I’m here: I relish sharing the beer
we make with guests and visitors. Beer is a truly democratic
drink; it’s totally unpretentious. Everyone can enjoy it.”

Hop Picking near Cooperstown. In the 19th- and early 20th-centuries,
New York State was the leader in hop production in the United States,
growing over eighty percent of the nation’s crop. Hop picking season
was an annual social event for many who left their regular jobs for three
to four weeks to go hop picking. Hop picking was considered both a
vacation and an adventure, and a way to meet new people and socialize.
During the day the hop pickers sang songs, told stories, and told jokes
while working in the hop yards. In the evenings, hop dances were held
each night on the hop farms and in town until the early morning hours.

had a piece in
the Whitney.
We were making sculpture,
which led to furniture and
pieces you could sit on.
But our daughter was approaching
school age, so we wanted to find a place
with good schools, and that brought
us here. Cooperstown has been a
treasure that has just opened up.
Kip: We bought a large old house on
Christian Hill, a few miles northwest of
Cooperstown. We began buying furniture
and other things at local farm auctions to
fill the house. For the first four years, we
were spending weekends on Christian Hill
and staying in the city during the week.
Judith: On weekends we were driving an
old tractor around our property and during
the week we were riding the subway.
Kip: Down there, everyone was crowded
shoulder-to-shoulder, and up here you could
hear your own heartbeat. The balance of
our lives started to shift in favor of that ‘70s
ideal of leaving the city for the country and
simplifying. We found that we could buy box
lots of old stuff from farm
auctions and bring them down
to the city and sell them. No
matter what it was – tennis
racquets with no strings, a
box of old cups – someone
out there was collecting it.
Then in 1978 we bought
this barn on Route 28 (just
south of Cooperstown and
north of Milford). This will
be our 30th
summer.
The barn itself is a historical structure.
There were cows here 50 years ago and
still the evidence of much hard work.
People say it’s like a museum, and
that we should charge admission.
Kip: We love what we do.
Shopping in and around Cooperstown is an
adventure, a treasure hunt, a neighborly
afternoon stroll. There is certainly an
eclectic array of goods offered in diverse
environments – something for everyone.
You can
say we have
four floors
and 12,000
square feet
of space,
but that
doesn’t
really
convey the
experience
of our barn. When I tell people we have
1,400 chairs and 25 different farm tables,
that gives an impression of what it’s
like in the barn. We’ve had people come
and spend three hours looking around,
leave for lunch and then come back.
Judith: We don’t think of it as an antiques
shop. Kip has created a unique environment
– really it is a sculptural space to be in,
from the gardens that surround the barn to
the interior, where the pieces are arranged
in vignettes with an eye toward design.
As an artist, this is where his heart is.
The experience of being in the barn
is sort of like a history lesson about
the daily life of men and women who
lived here years ago – the furniture,
folk art, tools and farm implements.

A sightseeing trip to the Erie Canal turned a
retired yachting couple into “reverse transplants”
and opened the gate to a new life in New York.

Okechobee Waterway. It wasn’t just the locks
that were so exciting for us. It was the fact
that the canal was such a remarkable feat of
technology in 1817, when it was begun. More
than anything, we appreciated the engineering
that went into it – the guard gates and the
dams. The canal was 363 miles long, with 83
locks that were each 90 feet by 15 feet. The
history, though, is the thing that really slapped
us in the face, the changes that the canal
wrought in the development of the country.
“Before the canal, America was sandwiched
between the Appalachian mountains and
the Atlantic Ocean, with no easy way to
get through the mountains. There was no
transportation faster than carts pulled by
draft animals. In 1817, two years before the
canal was completed, there were only 5,000

Thirty years later, the population had
increased to 5 million; the speed and
ease of transportation on the canal
had facilitated the exploration and
settlement of that western frontier.
“As travelers ourselves, once we arrived
in the Mohawk Valley we were amazed
not only by the Erie Canal, but also by
the beauty of the area, the wonderful
people living here and the area’s rich
history. The whole canal corridor from
Lake Erie to the Hudson River is a rich

in our opinion, the Mohawk Valley is

The 123-mile section
of Route 20 delivers
a unique experience
for visitors, including

lodging, and even some
world-class eateries.

Northeast Classic Car Museum
See 125 of the most beautiful and amazing automobiles
ever built at the Northeast Classic Car Museum in
Norwich. The seven exhibits have fascinating examples
of early technological advances, plus unusual models
and famous manufacturers that shaped our country’s
automotive heritage – Auburn, Duesenberg, Cord,
Stutz, Stanley Steamer, Franklin, and many others.
The museum also exhibits historic antique aircraft,
including bombers, fighters and aircraft engines.

Because of its easy
access to and from
Route I-88 and I-81
and its proximity to
the New York State
Thruway, Route 20
offers travelers a
chance to take the
road “less traveled”
and experience
small town life.
A don’t miss is
Cherry Valley, a small
village that features
art galleries, shops,
and plenty of history.
Just before turning
onto County 54 stop
by The TePee, an
example of roadside architecture
from the 20th century and gift
shop featuring Native Americaninspired items.
While you’re in
Cherry Valley, you
won’t want to miss
the opportunity to
dine at the worldclass Rose & Kettle
Restaurant, where
chef Clement
Coleman and his
wife maitre’d Dana
Spiotta will make
you feel like one of the family.
People forget that Route 20 was
the Great Western Road and
one of the major transportation
routes that opened up settlement
of the west. Paralleling the Erie
Canal to the north, vestiges
of Route 20’s development
can be seen in its old inns,
waysides, and early settlements.
Later, tourist courts and cabins
developed along the route
when automobile travel made
it easier for people to tour the
countryside. Now it’s a great
way to slow down, visit some
outstanding cultural sites, shop
and dine, and meet local people.
Martha Frey is president of the
Route 20 Association of New
York State, which is overseeing the
revitalization of the Route 20 Scenic
Byway Corridor and working to
implement its management strategy.
For more information, go to www.
Route20byway.com or pick up a Route
20 Scenic Byway Brochure at the
Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce.
The Rose and Kettle Restaurant is where worldclass dining meets small town charm.

George Clarke. Constructed in limestone between 1817-34.
THE FAMILY – Hyde Hall salutes the great land-owning Clarke family, embedded in the
early political, economic and social history of New York. Furnished with original pieces
and paintings created by outstanding New York craftsmen and artists, Hyde Hall’s every
detail reflects the Clarkes’ English background and sensibility.
THE LANDSCAPE – Hyde Hall’s grounds, originally encompassing Glimmerglass State
Park, were 1820s America’s first example of a “picturesque” landscape design. Today’s
visitors still delight in unsurpassed vistas of Otsego Lake and Hyde Bay from sweeping
lawns. Hyde Hall Covered Bridge – the “oldest covered bridge in the United States.”

past use as a cobbler shop. The store has something for everyone.”

Emergency Vehicles in Cooperstown
New York State is lucky to have dedicated volunteer firemen and EMS workers who staff our local fire departments. These men and women hear the call and drop whatever they are doing to rush to service. We ask that
you cooperate with them so they can do their jobs without any extra delay. WHEN EMERGENCY VEHICLES
APPROACH: Emergency vehicles display flashing red or red and white lights, and sound a siren or air horn when they must have the
right of way. BY LAW YOU MUST STOP and pull over to allow the emergency vehicle to proceed regardless of the direction you are
traveling. Emergency drivers can’t pass safely without visibility. Pull over to the first place available that provides visibility for passing, and
stop until the emergency vehicle has gone by. Drivers who do not yield delay response time. Our fire trucks and ambulances are driven
by volunteers who may display flashing blue lights when responding to a call. Please extend the same courtesy required for emergency
vehicles to those displaying blue lights. Emergency vehicles cannot respond until personnel have arrived at the station. Only you can help
us help others! – COOPERSTOWN EMERGENCY SQUAD

Rediscover the innocent beauty,
the intricate wisdom and the enduring charm
of our rural past at The Farmers’ Museum
There are a thousand stories at The Farmers’ Museum. Beside the forge at the Blacksmith’s Shop,
across the counter at Todd’s General Store, by the hearth at Lippitt Farmstead, astride the loon
on The Empire State Carousel. Around every corner is an opportunity to reconnect with a richly
colorful and ingenious rural culture that can still surprise and enchant more than 150 years later.
