NEW SCOTLAND — The Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy will host several events on Sunday, including an afternoon-long Summer Festival at Indian Ladder Farms and a series of “Hike-A-Thons” at a variety of locations in Altamont and New Scotland.

NEW SCOTLAND — On Sunday, July 17, at noon, Indian Ladder Farms will be unveiling an historical marker commemorating the farm founded in 1916 by Peter Ten Eyck, a former state commissioner of agriculture and a United States Congressman. The farm and apple orchard is now operated by the fourth generation of Ten Eycks.

John Boyd Thacher was one of the most distinguished and revered Albanians of his day. He was born at Ballston, Saratoga County on Sept. 11, 1847, the elder son of George Hornell and Ursula Jane (Boyd) Thacher. His father married his mother in 1843. She was the daughter of David Boyd, Esq. of Schenectady.

Last Saturday, a group of hikers were led through John Boyd Thacher State Park on a walk filled with history lessons given by Tim Albright.
