Please join the Clinton County Historical Association (CCHA) on Saturday August 13th at 10:30 am for a narrated walking tour of the historic buildings surrounding the Old Base Oval, in the City of Plattsburgh.
The Old Base Oval has been a part of the Military Base from the War of 1812 until the closing of the Plattsburgh Air Force Base in 1995. While on the Tour, your guide will point out the repurposed historic buildings and locations, share pictures of their glorious past, and narrate events that once took place at each site. Special arrangements have been made to see the inside of an Officer’s Quarters and the Memorial Chapel.
This one- and one-half hour walking tour will fascinate history buffs and those who have a special relationship with the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base and the rich history of the Champlain Valley. At the end of the tour, copies of “The Plattsburgh Military Reservation, A Pictorial History” by Dr. Richard B. Frost and Melissa A. Peck will be available for those interested in purchasing a copy, and the museum will be open.
The tour will begin in front of the CCHA Museum at 98 Ohio Avenue. Please register for the tour by calling 561-0340. Tours are free, and donations are appreciated.
