Ken Gottry - Cambridge NY History

On Saturday 26-Apr-2014 I gave a slideshow presentation at the Cambridge Public Library. Many locals were on hand to add their stories to my slides, including Harry Moses and Carleton Peters.

Eagle Bridge was once a thriving metropolis with two hotels, an opera house, and much more. Eagle Bridge was the junction of the east-west Boston & Maine railroad line and the north-south Delaware & Hudson. The 1886 D&H railroad map shows Eagle Bridge with equal prominence as Troy, Albany, and Saratoga. The houses were beautiful and the streets tree-lined. These photos bring that history to life.
