Nestled into the soft rolling hills of Upstate New York about halfway between Albany and Binghamton lies the small town of Cooperstown. Settled in the late 18th century, Cooperstown was strategically located at the southern tip of Lake Otsego at the headwaters of the Susquehanna River, then a major thoroughfare of commerce.

This picture postcard town features a beautiful tree-lined main street, the Farmer's Museum, the oldest outdoor living history museum showcasing rural life in the 19th century, and the Fenimore Art Museum. But Cooperstown also happens to be the epicenter of our national pastime, also known as baseball.
