Daniel Conkling

RENSSELAERVILLE — The Preservation League of New York State has given the Daniel Conkling House in Rensselaerville an award for Excellence in Historic Preservation.

The league's statewide awards program honors notable achievements in retaining, promoting, and reusing New York State's irreplaceable architectural heritage.

Broken windows in the long-neglected 1806 Conkling house were replaced with old glass. An etched name on one pane brought back memories of a little girl writing her name with a borrowed diamond; her elderly son told that story.
