FORT HUNTER - The Friends of Schoharie Crossing will host a field trip to Fultonville's Starin Place at 1 p.m. May 17.
The event will be presented by Karen Chapman, director of Fortroyale Preservation Society in Fultonville and owner of Starin Place.
Starin Place is a 600-acre estate, which featured in its prime a stately mansion, a racetrack, a zoo, hot houses, nurseries, a trout pond, carriage houses, barns, a gazebo and other buildings.
The tour is open to the public, but attendees must be a member of the Friends of Schoharie Crossing. For a fee of $10 for adults or $5 for seniors and students, people can join the Friends group and attend the Starin Place trip, a news release said.
Participants should arrive at the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center, 129 Schoharie St., at 12:30 p.m. to fill out the Friends form and pay the annual dues.
Participants will then car-pool to Starin Place for the tour.
