BALLSTON SPA — Stories of famous and not-so-famous Saratoga County residents to tales of corruption, heroism, and fun entertainment venues will be released as a second volume of stories published by the Saratoga County History Center, covering various topics related to the history of Saratoga County.

“Saratoga County Stories,” a compilation of 66 articles by 33 authors originally published weekly by the Saratoga County History Roundtable, draws on the knowledge and experiences of local historians and history buffs, some of whom have only recently taken up the pen to share their stories. 

The book includes articles from the Revolutionary War period up to the development of GlobalFoundries.

The book will be released and available for sale at two book launch events where guests can talk with the authors and obtain signed copies of the book. The initial event will be at Brookside Museum, 21 Fairground Avenue, Ballston Spa, on Sunday, Nov. 13, from 2-4 pm.  A second event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 2-4 pm at Grooms Tavern in Clifton Park.

More Saratoga County Stories is the third book published by SCHC in the past year.  SCHC’s other titles are Saratoga County Stories and Stephen Williams’ Off the Northway. For more information, go to:
