GILBERTSVILLE – The entire Village of Gilbertsville is on the National Register of Historical Places as an official historical site. From 7 to 9 p.m. on Dec. 8, the Gilbertsville Free Library will host its second annual Christmas Historical House Tour. The town was orgranized in 1796, but was settled nearly 30 years earlier.
The area is well known for its pre-Civil War homes; in fact some are over 170 years old. The library was built in 1818 and was originally a school house. This year’s historic homes tour theme will be “Dressed for the Holidays” and each of the homes on the walking route will be decorated festively.
