Upcoming Trip - Sat - 5/5 Bike Ride
Brian and I are doing a nice cycle tomorrow if anyone would like to join us.
There is a nice loop ride The William H. Miner story - 35.3 miles, starts in Chazy.
Here is a description of the ride:
0.0 Chazy Central School - Parking.
L on Graves Street.
0.2 R on Route 9.
0.7 L on Miner Farm Road.
6.8 Cross Route 22.
11.4 R on Joe Wood Road (stay straight for
services in Altona).
14.3 R on Gilbert Road.
17.9 L on Route 22.
18.2 Downtown Mooers.
18.7 R on Lavalley Road.
26.1 Cross Route 9 and stay on Route 9B.
27.6 Coopersville. R on Lake Shore Road.
32.5 R on Duprey Road.
35.3 Chazy Central School.
This loop starts at the Chazy Central Rural School, built by
William H. Miner, and adjacent to the Alice T. Miner Museum.
The school was the first central school established in the
... United States. Mr. Miner invented a shock absorbing device
for railway cars, known as the “Miner Tandem Draft Rigging.”
The invention was patented and through resulting businesses,
Mr. Miner became a wealthy man. In addition to the school, he
built and equipped the Physicians Hospital and Kent-Delord
House museum in Plattsburgh and restored the Alice T. Miner
Colonial Collection in Chazy. The Miner Foundation built and
equipped the William H. Miner Agriculture Research Institute in
1956. Miner's old homestead, Hearts Delight Farm, located on
Minor Farm Rd., is open to the public. It is a working dairy farm
with a variety of exhibits and Morgan horses.
The Champlain Valley in this area is wide and relatively flat so
the slight climb experienced when leaving the lake is pleasantly
rewarded on the return.
We will be stopping to explore around and take pictures.
Let me know if you would like to join us.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget
what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
