      FALL MEETING - OCTOBER 14-16, 2016

      The Otesaga is reminiscent of a more genteel era when a gracious welcome was the standard. It exudes
      the charm and gracious hospitality of a bygone era. It blends perfectly with Cooperstown. Combining
      natural  beauty with an unhurried pace, Cooperstown is the ideal place to re-discover our nation’s past. 
      Cooperstown houses an unspoiled repository of merica’s heritage, rich in history, art, architecture and
      natural beauty. Some of the village’s key attractions include the National Baseball Hall of Fame and 
      Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, The Farmers’ Museum, the Glimmerglass festival and the 
      Leatherstocking Golf Course. A convenient getaway distance from New York, Boston, Philadelphia
      and other Northeastern and mid-Atlantic cities, Cooperstown is easily accessible by car, rail and air.
