Saratoga Today was kind enough to feature us on the cover of their 2014-2015 guide book!

Be sure to pick up a copy because it has tons of useful information and a very nice article about the Mansion written by Hollis Palmer (who also acts as Mr. Batcheller when giving tours of the Mansion!). The story starts on page 130.

Saratoga History:

Ever wonder how the Saratoga Race Course came to be?

On August 3rd 1863 John Hunter and William R. Travers, two wealthy horse owners decided to build a racetrack for their horses on the North Side of Union Avenue in Saratoga Springs. This is now the site of the Oklahoma Training Track.

In 1864 the racetrack moved across the street to its permanent location. The Saratoga Race Course is the oldest racetrack in the United States!

Batcheller Article:

For those of you History Buffs that really enjoy the story of the Batchellers, here is the article from the day that Kate passed away. This appeared on the front page of The Saratogian on January 4th, 1943. Take note at the end of the article that it states that she and Amelia lived together.

If you would like more articles posted that talk about the Batchellers please post below and let me know! I have a whole bunch.

Batcheller Mansion History Fact:

This Mansion was purchased and saved from the wrecking ball in 1973 by a young lawyer named Eugene Turchi for $40,000.00. He then put another $250,000.00 into the Mansion to restore it to its former glory.

Thanks Mr. Turchi!!
