SARATOGA SPRINGS — On Saturday, June 10, at 10:30 a.m.. the Saratoga Springs History Museum presents “Brandtville Boogie,” a fun, family-friendly walking tour where guests can enjoy the scenic beauty and historic interest of the neighborhood known as Brandtville.
During the nearly 1-mile loop participants are invited to look for the oldest homes in the neighborhood and identify other interesting remnants of this historically African American rural community that dates back to the late 1800s.
The tour is led by Carol Daggs, a descendant of the original Brandtville residents and author of Saratoga Soul Brandtville Blues. The starting/ending point is 29 Doten Avenue, located at the southeastern edge of Saratoga Springs. Between the dog park and the Racino, this quiet neighborhood is like a verdant extension of the Spa State Park.
Tickets are $15 for History Museum members, $25 for non-members at saratogahistory.org/events. Children age 12 and under can attend for free and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Maximum group size: 25. Rain date: Sunday, June 11, same time.
