Next week: Exploring the Mohawk Valley's Irish Heritage
Route 20 takes us to Sharon Springs this week. What as amazing village. It is at the same time both progressive and captured in time. In the late 19th and early 20th century this region was internationally renowned as a resort and health spa with grand hotels catering to the elite. We visited just a few of the many sights in this fascinating village and strongly encourage you to take a Road Trip along classic Route 20 yourself to "see what you can see..."
Thanks for traveling around the Mohawk Valley with us,

Taking of the Waters
Since early Native American times, the Sharon Springs area has been revered for its "healing waters." In the late 19th and early 20th century it became a playground for the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, and Rockefellers. Grand hotels and boarding houses were filled to capacity with people from all over the world who visited regularly for their "taking of the waters." Natural springs
of sulphur, magnesium and other minerals
continue to attract people to Sharon Springs.
Water temple were built over natural springs. People still visit today to take their waters.
We met a Russian family who visits every year from New York City. They are passing the tradition down to their children.
Sharon Springs businesses

We visited many businesses in Sharon Springs that believe traditional ways are sometimes the better way.
