The Saratoga And Mount McGregor Railroad, Saturday June 17th 2017

GRANT COTTAGE: “The Saratoga, Mount McGregor and Lake George Railroad: A Brief History,” 1 p.m. What did Mark Twain, Benjamin Harrison and Oscar Wilde have in common? They all rode the Saratoga, Mount McGregor and Lake George Railroad. Schenectady native Gino DiCarlo has been a fan of railroads since he was born. He is the creator of Gino’s Rail-Museum and Rail-Blog websites and the author of Trolleys of the Capital District and the soon-to- be-released, The Brief History of the Saratoga, Mount McGregor and Lake George Railroad. Gino will share photos and stories of the narrow-gauge railroad that brought the rich and famous, including General Grant, to the mountain-top above Saratoga Springs. A NYS Path Through History Weekend Event. The suggested donation for programs is $5 per person. 100 Mt. McGregor Road, Wilton.
