      My father-in-law ran the Blue Goose Tavern in Clemens(just outside of Whitehall). It was located just off Route 9 along Blue Goose Road that forked to the left just after crossing South Bay bridge. The Blue Goose burned to the ground five years after he sold it.
      He was one of the first to make hoagies and got his bread from a bakery in Rutland.

        Thanks for sharing Justin. Photos tell a great story by themselves.

          Thanks Ed.
          Bummer that it burned down.
          I always thought the blue goose was a cool name.
          My old man used to do a lot of white water canoe races back in the day. I remember as a kid watching from shore as they ran the rapids and waiting for the Goose to come by.

Every fraternity of sufferers knows its brothers.Trout hook men;men don`t hook trout.Better try and throw the hook while you can.By the time you`re a grown man there probably won`t be a pure trout healthy enough to fiddle with"...
