Come on up and discover the Hilltowns!

To the Editor:

For the third year in a row, the Helderberg Hilltowns Association welcomes you to our Discover the Hilltowns: Farm and Artisans Tour.  The self-guided driving tour takes place on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14 and 15. 

Farmers, artisans, and crafters in and around the Hilltowns of Berne, Knox, Rensselaerville, and Westerlo will be giving tours, doing demonstrations, and selling products related to their professions.  Also included on the tour are businesses, markets, restaurants, historical museums, and other places of interest.

More information and the Tour Guide map may be downloaded from our website or by e-mailing  After Sept. 6, printed maps will be available at the Altamont, Voorheesville, Berne, Rensselaerville, and Westerlo libraries, and also at the Hilltown Community Market, located at the Berne Masonic Lodge (next to the Berne Post Office) on the days of the event.

So on Sept. 14 and 15, come on up and discover the Hilltowns!
