Bagg's Square and Old Fort Schuyler, Utica, NY

Bagg’s Square and Old Fort Schuyler, Utica, NY

Before there was Utica, there was Fort Schuyler. And before there was Walmart, there was Bagg’s Tavern at Bagg’s Square. This site, located north of the city, was the first area in the area to be settled and maintained as a merchant center. It’s quite the experience, exploring this old little building with superhighways roaring around you.

Fly Creek Cider Mill, Fly Creek, NY

Fly Creek Cider Mill is a little jewel just north of Cooperstown. It’s a combination old-fashioned store/ cider mill/ livestock farm/ educational experience. No wonder it’s such a popular place! And who the heck named the town “Fly Creek”?!

The Old Main, or Utica Lunatic Asylum, NY

Renowned as the finest example of Greel Revival architecture in the world, the Old Main, or old Utica Lunatic Asylum, still stands. Barely. It sits aloof on its once pastoral grounds in the heart of Utica, NY. It’s history is incredibly rich and it is for this reason that this magnificent building still stands. This is my investigation of its history and the earth-shattering movement of treatable mental illness in this country.
