Historical Markers:
Methodist Farm

On July 7, 2019, the Sand Lake Historical Society unveiled a roadside historical marker at Methodist Farm on Crooked Lake. The marker commemorates the 1917 purchase of a farm by the "Methodist Sunday School Association of Troy and Vicinity, Inc." for use as a campground. A lovely picnic put on by the "campers" followed the dedication. Representing SLHS were President Jacqueline Tremont and members Andrew Mace, Pete Finn, Ann Winnicki, Jane Minotti and Michelle Mosher Schultz. Rensselaer County / Troy City Historian Kathy Sheehan also attended the ceremony, which was followed by a wonderful picnic hosted by the "campers"!

The Historical Society wishes to thank Charles Walker, "unofficial" historian, and Farm Manager Gary Wieland at Methodist Farm for their assistance.
