The Saratoga County History Center has announced the forthcoming release of their latest documentary, Bacon Hill, a Forgotten Crossroads. The program showcases the rich history and plans of the Bacon Hill farming community in the eastern Saratoga County town of Northumberland through the eyes of three generations of residents.
The documentary will have its first screening at a special event for History Center members on March 30th at 7 pm, which will take place at the Brookside Museum in Ballston Spa. The premiere will be at the Bacon Hill Reformed Church on April 20th at 7 pm, followed by a second showing on April 29th at 2 pm at the Brookside Museum.
Those interested in attending these events can register through the History Center’s website.
The SCHC’s series, “Forgotten Crossroads,” explores the history of bypassed communities in Saratoga County from the 19th and 20th centuries. Each episode highlights a different community and the stories of those still living there.
The first episode, released in April 2022, delves into the history of Rock City Falls in the town of Milton, a small hamlet located alongside Kayaderosseras Creek. Viewers can watch the episode on the SCHC’s YouTube channel.
