NY Fall Foliage Covered Bridge Tour
Thursday, October 9, 2014
The Theodore Burr Covered Bridge Resource Center
Located in: Oxford Memorial Library
Payment Deadline: September 17th Cost: $85/person
There is something about a covered bridge. They inspire memories of the days when many Americans lived on farms and in small close-knit communities. They are tangible links with our past, providing us with a sense of identity and stability. Thirty-two covered bridges still remain in small, country towns throughout New York State reminding us of times past and a quieter way of life.
Let us do the driving for you while you enjoy autumn in New York. Join us for an amazing fall day of bridging in Albany, Otsego, Rensselaere and Washington Counties visiting a total of six beautiful covered bridges. Covered bridge enthusiasts Bob and Trish Kane will be our tour guides for the day and provide interesting history on each bridge and show you how each bridge is unique and different. Washington and Rensselaere Counties covered bridges were rehabilitated in 2010 and are very beautiful, epsecially this time of year! We will also be visiting the beautiful Hyde Hall Covered Bridge, the oldest existing covered bridge in the United States built in 1825. This promises to be a really fun, educational tour. Morning refreshments, bag lunches, afternoon snacks will be provided by the tour. Dinner at Glimmerglass State Park in the Lakeview room overlooking beautiful Otsego Lake provided by the Friends of Glimmerglass.
