SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation presents a virtual program, “The Streets Where You Live,” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2.
The program will highlight the history behind the names of many streets in Saratoga Springs and will be presented by Charlie Kuenzel and will include images, personal remembrances, house histories and the city’s most prominent historic landmarks.
“As cities were planned and developed, the need to name new streets usually gravitated to the names of people, families or events in the history of that city. Saratoga Springs has followed that pattern for over 200 years,” Kuenzel said, in a statement.
Kuenzel is a native Saratogian who taught in the Saratoga City School District for 36 years and was co-owner of Saratoga Tours LLC for almost 20 years. He is the current President of the Saratoga Springs History Museum and writes regular history articles for Simply Saratoga and Saratoga Today.
This virtual program will take place on Zoom for a suggested donation of $10 or more.
