Utica’s Historic Rutger Park–Zach’s Weekly Snaps [PHOTOS]
I recently had the opportunity to visit Rutger Park on Rutger Street in Utica and tour Rutger Home number 3. History definitely come alive when you walk through the doors of the nearly 200 year old home. Staged to look like how it did when it was occupied, the beautiful architecture is still a sight to be seen, despite years of aging. Yes, although there are parts of the home that have aged and weathered more than others, all the houses in Rutger Park are definitely a gem to be seen in Utica.
And, the public actually has a chance to view these gems next week. It's part of the Landmarks Society of Greater Utica's "Picnic in the Park." On Saturday June 2 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., attendees will be given guided tours of Rutger Homes number 1 and 3 for $10, have a chance to view an art exhibit in Rutger Home number 4 for $2 and tour Rutger Home number 5 for $2. In addition to tours, there will be food, entertainment, vendors, artisans, a car show, and book signings.
I would like to share with you my tour of Rutger Home number 3 today as part of Zach's Weekly Snaps. This week's theme--Rutger Park.
