I had a week off from work this past week and managed to get to the Kingsland Square Bistro for a wonderful breakfast sandwich and smoothie. The place is gorgeous, and the food delicious and very much worth a visit and then return visits.
I also got to visit The Anderson Falls Heritage Museum and was utterly amazed at the incredible displays of history within its walls. Virtually every aspect of Keeseville history – the bridges, the hotels, fire department, military, education, Pepsi, AuSable Chasm, and many, many more topics are all there in focused, beautiful displays. We were completely enthralled by it all. I highly recommend visiting the museum as long as you have plenty of time to take it all in. My thanks to June and staff for all their enthusiasm and obvious love for the history of our area. The Museum is located at 96 Clinton Street and is open from nine until noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The Museum is free to visit which I highly recommend.
Local photographer Lynn Manning’s Art Show and Sale entitled “Rooms for Views” runs until Aug. 8t at the Keeseville Free Library. Still time to see and own some of her beautiful work.
The second annual Freedom Festival of Music will be Thursday, Aug. 1 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the AuSable Chasm Pavilion. Featured performers include local favorites Roy Hurd, Lita Kelly, Speedy Arnold, The Lake Champlain Gospel Choir and Charlie Stone and Split Rock. All proceeds will go to benefit the North Star Underground Railroad Museum, which is located just down the hill from the festival site. Admission is seven dollars for adults and two dollars for children under twelve. Tickets may be purchased at Arnold’s Grocery in Keeseville, Bob’s Music and the Corner Bookshop both in Plattsburgh and at the North Star Museum or at the event itself.
Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. is the Keeseville Farmer’s Market behind Front Street right on the bank of the AuSable River. Visit it and support our local artisans and farmers while getting the freshest products and unique art. Namaste’
