Just saw a sign saying Hyde hall, so we went up and decided to take tour, the volunteer ladies were a delight, the restoration of the hall was their mission. We were so lucky to have a direct descendant to be on the tour seeing the improvements that have been done

Another lovely afternoon was spent here at this mansion :) I took the one hour tour thru the mansion, which was in the process of being restored to it's original state and beauty. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and had patiently answered questions from our group. The interior was beautiful as well as the views of Otsego Lake!... More
