Preservation Foundation Tour To Brandtville June 19

SARATOGA SPRINGS — In celebration of Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation offers the exclusive tour “BRANDTVILLE BOOGIE” on Sunday, June 19 with Carol Daggs. 

This fun, family-friendly walking tour will invite guests to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Saratoga Springs neighborhood historically known as Brandtville. 

Dating back to the 1800s, this historically African American rural farming community is located at the southeastern edge of the city, highlighting Crescent Street and Doten Avenue. The nearly one-mile loop encourages participants to look for the oldest homes in the neighborhood and identify other interesting remnants that remain in Brandtville. This tour meets at the driveway of 29 Doten Ave. 

SSPF’s Sunday morning tours last approximately 90 minutes and require walking and standing on varied terrain. Tours will be limited to thirty and tickets must be purchased in advance.  The cost per tour is $15 for SSPF members and $20 for non-members.  For additional information on these summer strolls or to purchase tickets to any of these upcoming tours, visit www.saratogapreservation.org, call 518-587-5030, or email Jacqueline Bunge, Events & Programs Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots.
