Overview

Around Watkins Glen, New York (Images of America Series) by Charles R. Mitchell, Kirk W. House


Long ago, visitors reached Watkins Glen by railroad, steamboat, and horse-drawn wagon. They came to stay in the grand resorts, watch automobile racing in the streets, stroll through the countryside, attend Grange fairs, and ride an early trolley. Today the grand resorts are gone, but millions still come seeking spectacular gorges, the inland sea of Seneca Lake, vast vineyards, fine wineries, and Grand Prix racing.
