Dave Patterson and Charlie Kuenzel present this not-to-be missed talk about Saratoga Springs’ founding father. In 1789 Gideon and Doanda arrived in Saratoga Springs and recognized that our natural occurring mineral springs were an asset that could be used as a drawing card for the visitors to our new city. Come hear Dave and Charlie discuss the life and times of Gideon, which is marked by his death 200 years ago on December 1st of this year. This program is free and open to the public, held in the Dutcher Community Room of the Saratoga Springs Public Library. Program begins promptly at noon. Tea and coffee are provided.
