Rutger Park In Utica Comes Alive
If you’re familiar with Utica history, you know about the mansions located in Rutger Park. I have fond personal memories of those structures. As a kid, I lived across the street from Rutger Park and knew the family who lived in those mansions. I used to play in number 1 and 3 Rutger Park with the family’s children three or four days a week. I can still remember the great softball games we would have on the huge lawn in front of 1 Rutger Park.
Here are details of an upcoming event at Rutger Park from our sister station, WIBX:
“On September 15th, from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., the Landmarks Society of Greater Utica is hosting its second annual History Comes Alive Celebration in Utica’s Rutger Park.
The one day event features storytelling and living historians, including local leaders, such as the Remington and Conkling families, and national figures like Harriet Tubman and Abe Lincoln.
In addition, the Daughters of the American Revolution will perform a tea ceremony, while the Oneida Indian Nation demonstrates how to make corn husk dolls. Desserts and refreshments will also be available.
Proceeds from the event will be used to restore buildings at Rutger Park.
The cost to attend the History Comes Alive celebration is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children under five receive free admission.”
