Details

Did you know that Teddy Roosevelt, F.D.R, and Harpo Marx once walked the streets of Gloversville? Come and view the same buildings that a young MGM Studio head Samuel Goldwyn once saw in Downtown Gloversville! This 1-mile self-guided tour contains 9 stops that showcases the city that was home to the industry that not only gloved the nation, but also the world. The city was also home to the Kingsborough Hotel that lodged men that went on to become president. Home to a large historic commercial district that is centered on the "Four Corners" of Main and Fulton Streets, the Downtown Gloversville Historic District has many buildings that range in age and are architecturally significant from pre-1850 on. A bonus stop, located at the intersection of State Street and Kingsboro Avenue, extends the journey to a 4-mile tour. Obtain a guide online at our website or pick up one at:
