Architecture and art collide at The Major’s Inn Quilt Show in Gilbertsville

GILBERTSVILLE – An iconic landmark nestled within the Village of Gilbertsville will host one its annual fundraisers this weekend with a little help from friends.

The Major's Inn Foundation will host its yearly “Wrapped in Fabric” quilt show this upcoming Friday through Sunday inside the 52-room tudor style mansion that was once home to the Village’s namesake, Maj. James L. Gilbert.



Renown for its archetypal appointments and stately footprint, the Inn regularly serves as a hub for community members within the small village located just over the Otsego County line on State route 51 in the Town of Butternuts.

While the stoic stone and timber structure may seem like it has passed the test of time, the building that dates back to 1878 was at one point a mere crumbling pile of stones – neglected from necessary upkeep and basic repairs.
