Area Attractions

      Our region of upstate New York is known as Leatherstocking Country, homage to James Fenimore Cooper.
The surrounding area offers a wealth of activities and attractions.  Bouckville, five minutes north of town, is an
antiquing center with more than 30 shops.
      Hamilton itself is a lovely rural village with a variet of architecture (a self-guided architectural walk is avai-
lable), quite neighborhoods, and small shops.  The gorgeous hill countryside surrounding the village is ideal
for strolling, biking, rollerblading or running.  Colgate's Seven Oaks Golf Course and Country Club will also be
open (green fees apply).
