2018 Schedule

Study Tour in Vischer Ferry, Saratoga County

Saturday, June 16, 2018

10:00 am: Meet at the Vischer Ferry General Store, 357 Riverview Road, Rexford, NY. It is located in the center of Vischer Ferry across from the fire house at the intersection of Riverview and Vischer Ferry Roads (take exit 8 off the Northway and three and a half miles east).

The walking tour of the Vischer Ferry Historic District will include a stop at the Vischer Homestead to view the interior. The rear wing of the house was built in about 1740 by Nicholas Vischer. The larger Federal portion was built about 1806 (from a dated coin found in the wall) by Nicholas's son Eldert Vischer. The walking tour will end at the General Store about 12:30 PM for lunch and a brief meeting.

After lunch, about 1:30 PM, drive one half mile north to visit the Abraham Best House, a federal home built in 1815 (rear wing may be earlier). This house is on the National Register of Historic Places and retains original features. Detailed information about these two brick homes and the Historic District will be provided by John Scherer, Clifton Park Town Historian.
