Peggy and I met up with the guy we met the other day who owns the former Mountain View Hotel in Stamford. He gave us a tour of the inside. We went all the way to the top, right into the room just below the huge weathervane.
Then we drove to Fleischmanns to go to the Fleischmanns Museum of Memories. We arrived around 2:15, which was good since it closes at three p.m. We really enjoyed this small museum. The guy running it told us how to find two remaining old hotels, THE REGIS and THE PALACE. Here is a picture of the PALACE HOTEL The owner was on the front porch when we arrived, and we asked if we might go inside and look around, but she said she did not have time. Darn!!! We also saw the freight building for the depot/railroad. The depot was torn down a while back, but the freight storage bldg. still remains.
We tried to find a geocache at the anti-rent historical sign, but were not successful. Our last stop was at an interesting farmstand/auction house.
Supper was in Oneonta at BROOKS HOUSE of BBQ. We arrived home around 7:30 p.m., tired but happy! Peggy now understands why I enjoy exploring small villages, etc.! Pictures I took today are here:
