    BY:Dr. Brent

    …Newman. Jane is one of the most inspiring persons we’ve ever met. Some of you have also met her during the tours of our farm during Sharon Springs Festivals. She’s the unassuming, pretty English woman who leads tours of the flower garden, sharing her knowledge. Little did you know, however, how amazing she truly is. Here is her story… The pale, gangly English girl focused her gaze on the short runway ahead of her. A tree just ov…

    Hyde Hall

    BY:Mitchell Owens

      Since childhood I’ve been obsessed with historic houses, whether modest or magnificent. Much of this passion has to do with the intriguing stories old houses have to tell—after all, one can swoon over a building’s architectural style but the narrative behind its creation is what gives it life. Which explains why I fell madly in love with Hyde Hall in Springfield, New York, ten years ago, not long after I moved to nearby Sharon Springs, and why I’m a […]

    2011 Garden Party in Pictures

    BY:Josh Kilmer-Purcell

      This is my favorite time of year in Sharon Springs! (Ok, I know I say that every season.) The 2nd annual Garden Party that occurred over Memorial Day weekend marked the beginning of the summer season in Sharon Springs. The village has a long tradition as a summer destination – at the turn of the 20th century over 10,000 people swarmed the streets, grand hotels, and bathhouses each summer. We might have a few fewer now, but the 2000…
