Cooperstown Overview

Being the Otsego County seat Cooperstown is somewhat of a political center. A small town by almost anyone’s standards it had a population of only 1,936 in 2003.

While most commonly known for The Baseball Hall of Fame Cooperstown is rich with history. Having close ties to the past Cooperstown strives to preserve its roots and pre-roots. Native American art, lore and culture is kept alive by museums and festivals in the surrounding area. Farming being the main source of early settlers’ livelihoods is also honored by museums as well. At one time it was home to the famous American author James Fenimore Cooper, son of the founder, William Cooper.

Cooperstown is also prided for its architecture and landscaping. With large Victorian houses lining many of the streets and commissioned landscaping companies caring for the public buildings it is easily one of the most aesthetically pleasing towns in New York State.
