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.
