Cooperstown sits on the southern edge of Otsego Lake in central New York, approximately 133 miles northeast of Binghamton. This lovely, pristine village, set in the foothills of the Catskills, has tree-lined streets and classic architecture, and many attractions and activities. It's internationally known as the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and also boasts The Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. William Cooper founded the village of Cooperstown in the 1700s, and several of the stone buildings built by him remain in the town today. Cooper's son, James Fenimore Cooper, was the beloved author, whose "Leatherstocking Tales" are set in the countryside surrounding Cooperstown. Cooper referred to Ostego Lake as "Glimmerglass" and the name stuck and is still used today. Recreation in the area includes swimming, sailing, boating and fishing, horseback riding, hiking, golf - and of course, baseball. There are several sports parks in town and three games per day are played on Doubleday Field. In 1992, Cooperstown was the location for the movie "A League of Their Own." Cooperstown is also home to a well-known Farmer's Market, which holds many special events throughout the year, including the "Candlelight Evening at The Farmer's Market," which is one of central New York's biggest holiday traditions. Other attractions in Cooperstown include The Farmers' Museum, an 1845 historic farmstead, Glimmerglass State Park and tours of Otsego Lake on board the Glimmerglass Queen.
