Overview


Best known today as the Home of Baseball, Cooperstown and the Otsego Lake area are rich in history and, unlike many places, much of this heritage remains intact. Thus, the Cooperstown area is said to offer us "a step back in time." You will not find any fast-food restaurants or chain stores here. A majority of the original buildings are still in use, serving as small shops, offices, banks, and other businesses. Each of the nearby villages--Cherry Valley, Springfield, Milford, Hartwick, and Index--has its own incredible architecture and its own story to tell. Otsego Lake is the famed Glimmerglass in the writings of Cooperstown's favorite son, James Fenimore Cooper. The area also boasts the Glimmerglass Opera, the Leatherstocking Golf Course, and historical museums, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

    A STEP BACK IN TIME!

    If you like history, baseball, or postcards,you'll enjoy this book. Over 200 postcard views and 128 pages give you the history of a little town in upstate NY famous for James Fenimore Cooper, and the Home of Baseball. A must for any coffee table. It would make a great gift.
