Cooperstown

Nearly 300,000 people a year make the pilgrimage to Cooperstown to pay homage to the heroes of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, but in the process, many also discover an unspoiled repository of America's heritage, rich in history, art, architecture and natural beauty. Exploring the baseball museum and the other gems of Cooperstown, like the Fenimore Art Museum, The Farmers' Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera, it is possible to find the core of America itself.

Visitors wonder why this small village of 2,000 inhabitants located in central New York State should be the home of Baseball's Exciting Showcase. The answer to this often-asked question involves a Doubleday myth.
