President Obama Set to Visit Cooperstown Thursday

Written By Editor on 5/21/14 | 5/21/14


President Barack Obama will be visiting the area Thursday afternoon, stopping at the Baseball Hall of Fame in the Village of Cooperstown to discuss tourism with local officials and deliver a private speech that will be streamed on the internet. 

Baseball Hall-of-Fame,
Cooperstown, N.Y.
Mr. Obama will become the first sitting president to visit the Hall of Fame in the museum's seventy-five year history. According to The Post-Standard, Cooperstown has hosted one head of state before, but not since Martin Van Buren in 1839.

Although Schoharie County was famously referred to as the "Breadbasket of the Revolution," by then General George Washington in the opening stage of the colonial fight for independence, no president has ever visited the rural county.
