This is a bit out of the way byt worth the trip. It is a work in restoration progress, but has great beauty and a fascinasting history. Worth the trip.

This is a relatively hidden gem.
Just a short drive from Cooperstown, it is elegant and sits in a park-like setting.It is still in the growing stages but needs more exposure and more funding so that it can realize its full potential.
Set aside a couple of hours and you will be richly rewarded,

Went there for a ghost tour. The actors did a nice job. Able to learn about some of the history of the house and the residents in a unique way. A nice presentation. There is titanic museum that we did not have a chance to see, wish we had had the time.
