Brookton

Brookton

Brookton is the center of a rich mixed farming district, and today is notable for its colorful displays of gardens, trees and shrubs, including roadside nature strips of native wildflowers which are carefully tended by residents. The Old Railway Station has been refurbished as a craft shop and tourism information center. The Old Police Station now houses an unusual Police Force Museum. The Brookton Pioneer Heritage Trails offers two drives, 120km east and 8km west, with opportunities for picnicking. Brookton’s Old Time Motor Show in March each second (even-numbered) year attracts scores of classic cars, motorcycles, tractors and machines.

Erie Canal

Erie Canal

As you travel through the Central-Leatherstocking Region you find yourself travelling beside—or maybe even on—the Erie Canal, the impossible engineering project that united the waters of the Atlantic Ocean with the Great Lakes.  This is sports Hall of Fame country;  Cooperstown is a synonymous with baseball, Oneonta’s Soccer Hall of Fame pays homage to the sport’s growing popularity in the U.S., and Canastota continues its tributes to pugilists in the international Boxing Hall of Fame.
