I explored Saratoga Springs today by bicycle and on foot. I saw a huge number of old brick buildings (88 Circular, Mouzon House, the Historical Museum, Military Museum, Arts Council, the rear of the police station (above), and the Saratogian), visited the Farmer’s Market, and purchased some great food. Fun!

After lunch, we continued our epic TTRAG tour (during the Timber Framer’s Guild conference) with a stop in Schuylerville. I walked around a bit and saw a church, the Fish Creek penstock and generating station, and a few houses before finding a trail at the Saratoga National Historic Park where we visited Philip Schuyler house and I took this photo on a bridge across Fish Creek. From there, we visited a barn that is being converted to a house in Kings Station and an old farm and barn south of Corinth.
I went on the epic TTRAG tour during the Timber Framer’s Guild conference. Kim B choose the locations and we travelled around Saratoga County. Our first stop was in Ballston Spa (we toured the inside of the historic Brookside Museum and First Presbyterian Church but I also walked around the town). We then went to a farm on Stonebridge Rd. to look at an old barn that has seen better days (above). From there, we travelled to Bacon Hill to see another church.
