We have already had 56 Stockade Walkabouts in New York’s oldest registered historic district.This year we have an unusual variety of house styles and decorating from bold and striking to elaborate Victorian. You will see a 2-story tower with curved walls, homes with river views, a house filled with creative toys and a little house with antiques in every nook and cranny! You’ll get a peek into Arthur’s Market to see what plans the new owner, Haley Priebe, has up her sleeve, get a tour of the newly beautified Stockade Inn, explore a dig by SCCC’s Community Archaeology Program behind Governor Yates’ childhood home, along with the Civic Players showcasing all their exciting renovations, special exhibits at the Schenectady County Historical Society – Childhood in Schenectady, Immigration in Schenectady and Colonial Days – artist studios at the Brouwer house, one of our oldest Stockade homes, and tours of the 1930 YWCA NorthEasternNY building. Our three historic churches will be open for tours and exhibits: St. George’s Episcopal Church, the First Reformed Church, and First Presbyterian Church.Save this special Saturday in September as a day to relax, listen to some great music, chat with friends and costumed characters and enjoy some local food all while strolling through three centuries of our fabulous history.
