“Electric Lake” Walking Tour

October 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On Sunday, October 10, Jim Loudon, historian and author of “Electric Lake: Oneonta’s Forgotten Gem,” will lead us on a tour at the site of the former lake. Keep in mind, this tour may be strenuous and require walking through mud or even water. Wear hiking boots, bring insect repellent, and be wary of ticks! Be advised, this tour meets at 2pm. There will be free and accessible parking available off the I-88 eastbound on ramp, where the tour will meet (see map). Before getting on the highway, you will see a sign that says “no motor vehicles.” Follow it and there will be permitted parking there. This tour is by donation and reservations are not required. In the event of rain, a rain date has been scheduled for the following Sunday, October 17 at 2pm.
