Author Chuck D’Imperio’s new book Open House: 35 Historic Upstate New York Homes (Syracuse University Press, 2019) takes readers on a tour of some of the more fascinating and mostly little-known historic homes across the state.
From the neoclassical mansion of the Clarke family tucked away on a hill in Cooperstown to the rustic Catskill Mountains cottage of famed naturalist John Burroughs, this book offers the architectural and historic background on some of New York’s unique residences.
The guide includes detailed information on visiting, with directions, and the author’s notes on the history of the homes and the people who lived in them. It’s a good companion for your next road trip or Sunday drive.
Chuck D’Imperio is the author of several books about Upstate New York. His most recent titles include Unknown Museums of Upstate New York: A Guide to 50 Treasures and A Taste of Upstate New York: The People and the Stories behind 40 Food Favorites.
