Schenectady, N.Y. - The popular SECRET STOCKADE walking tours sold out last year -- so the Schenectady County historical society is bringing them back!
Discover the Stockade and its secrets on the first Wednesday of each month! Join us for a guided walking tour of the neighborhood, lunch at historic Arthur's Market, a peek inside a private 1820s Stockade home, and a visit to the Schenectady History Museum.
Schenectady's Stockade is a national jewel, boasting the highest concentration of historic period homes in the nation. For over 300 years, Schenectadians have called the Stockade home, and the streets are alive today with the stories and legends of Schenectady's past.
