Historical New York

Historical New York

New York State is filled with plenty of natural wonder and a whole lot of culture. And because it’s recognized as one of the 13 original colonies, a trip to Mid-Atlantic destination is also filled with a ton of history. Whether you’re visiting the far western reaches, the beautiful Catskills or the bonkers Big Apple, there’s a touchstone to the past almost everywhere you look. 

National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

Interactive exhibits, plenty of memorabilia and an extra-friendly staff members make a trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown truly memorable. It is said that you may need two or three days to really experience all the museum has to offer, but even a few hours wandering the galleries will have casual ball fans leaving with a new-found love of this favorite American pastime. 

Ten Broeck Mansion

Visitors lucky enough to score a guided tour of this incredible mansion with a member of Albany’s very own Historical Society will walk away with a better understanding of life in the capital in the early 1800s. Travelers love wandering through the restored rooms and manicured gardens, and and while it is agreed upon that this site is worth a visit any time of year, Ten Broeck Mansion is particularly beautiful when the halls are decked for the Christmas season. 

Anchor Bar

New York has plenty of real history, but the famed Anchor Bar in Buffalo proves a perfect stop for any traveler seeking a taste of Americana. This popular watering hole not only created—but also perfected—the recipe for Buffalo wings—a bar snack standby that’s served by the basketful here. 

Adirondack Folk School

Located on scenic Lake Luzerne, the Adirondack Folk School offers visitors a taste of the arts, crafts and culture that make this region so spectacular. Take classes in basket weaving, blacksmithing, ceramics and chair caning—all part of a hands-on learning experience that transports visitors back to colonial times. 

George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film

While there isn't a whole lot as far as exhibits go, the George Eastman House is still a beautifully restored historic home in the city of Rochester. Travelers can explore the incredibly restored rooms and hear stories about the founder of Kodak Film. There’s also a room filled with vintage cameras for interested photographers.
