Cooperstown...baseball & beautiful homes

**This post is photo intensive & make take a bit to load**



My family & I took a day trip to Cooperstown on Wednesday of last week. (In case you didn't know, Cooperstown, New York is the birthplace of baseball. This is where the Baseball Hall of Fame is located.)

My husband & children love all things baseball, so we visit Cooperstown often.

While I enjoy baseball and seeing all the awesome memorabilia, like this Lou Gehrig & Joe DiMaggio photo seen in the Hall of Fame,



and this Hall of Fame induction plaque for Reggie Jackson,



and modern-day Yankee memorabilia (such as Derek Jeter's helmet & batting gloves, CC Sabathia's cleats & hats worn by Mariano Rivera & Joe Torre),



what I really love is the quaintness of the village and the beautiful old homes.



Oh I can just walk the streets of the village looking at houses all day long.

So this time, I left the pack for a bit and did just that!

I felt kind of weird taking pictures of people's homes and hoped I didn't encounter anyone wondering exactly what I was doing. (Thankfully, I didn't.)

Here is some of the beauty of Cooperstown, New York...






















I wish I had more time, walking around the village, taking photos, but maybe next visit.

In my next post, I will highlight my most favorite Cooperstown home of all...stay tuned for that one, it's a beauty!

  1. Wow, what a great historical town Gena. My dad would have loved visiting there as baseball was his favorite when he was well. Now he has lost interest. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Many years ago my husband and I stopped in cooperstown. I have family that lives in Amsterdam NY and at the time we lived in Buffalo, so on our way home...we stopped. Well I will never forget the day, because it was so charming, I really wish we had more time. I love your pics. I just read your other post too, on your favorite home...I can so see myself there too.
