Gilbertsville hosts 'Dressed for the Holidays' home tour

GILBERTSVILLE – Because the entire Village of Gilbertsville is on the National Register of Historical Places, vistors come every year to view the architecture.

From 7 to 9 p.m. on Dec. 4, the Gilbertsville Free Library will host its annual “Dressed for the Holidays” Tour of Historic Gilbertsville.



The town was documented 13 years after the American Revolution ended in 1796, but was actually settled nearly 30 years earlier before America was even a country.

The area is well known for its pre-Civil War homes; in fact some over 170 years old. The library was built in 1818 and was originally a school house.

“Just to go into these beautiful old home and see what they’re like, you wouldn’t believe the wood working. It’s not like modern homes of today that basically look all alike, each was put together by craftsman of the past era,” said Village Improvement Society Member Diana Heeman.
