History & Hearsay

History is full of mysteries and lies, not just facts.  Take the tour and see if you can guess which tale is NOT true.  Join site staff David for an exclusive tour of Schoharie Crossing on Tuesday, August 16th from 6:30p-8:30pm and learn interesting bits of history as well as mystery along the canal.  Test your intuition, detective skills, and see if you can spot the fib!

This 1.5 mile walk will take participants around features of the canal and through parts of a once bustling industrial town.  After the tour, enjoy some refreshments in the Visitor Center as you check out the exhibit, “Little Short of Madness,” discuss with others which tale might be the lie, and then stick around for the reveal!

Pre-registration is encouraged as space is limited.  A link to register online can be found on the site’s Facebook event page.  For more information or to register contact David at (518) 829-7516 or
