SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation and the Saratoga Joinery host “On this Spot: 69 Caroline Street” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 18. 

Join Carol Godette at 69 Caroline Street where she will discuss the various uses of the 1880s brick duplex, from its early functions to its newest iteration as Saratoga Joinery, a community woodworking space, with a presentation and behind-the-scenes tour.

Originally, 69 Caroline Street was a multi-unit apartment building. Over time, it was adapted to serve different community needs as a holistic care center, a boardinghouse, a French restaurant, and a medical practice. Most recently, it was the Children’s Museum at Saratoga, cementing itself into the memories of countless children and families over two decades. 

After the museum moved to the Saratoga Spa State Park, Saratoga Joinery reimagined the space as a community woodworking shop. 

Saratoga Joinery is a community woodworking shop with a mission to make woodworking accessible to all.  Their shop at 69 Caroline Street is fully equipped with high-quality machines and tools and provides 8,500 square feet of bright, clean workspace to the community. More information can be found at www.saratogajoinery.org.

“The lack of skilled tradespeople is a huge concern across the country when it comes to historic preservation. The emergence of a specialized woodworking space like this is truly encouraging. Educating our community about traditional trades, such as woodworking, will greatly benefit our community,” said Samantha Bosshart, Executive Director of the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation, in a statement.

This program, benefiting the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation and Saratoga Joinery, is limited to 45 people. Tickets cost $20 for members of these organizations or $25 for non-members. Visit www.saratogapreservation.org or call 518-587-5030 for more information.
