Visit the Gloversville Free Public Library, an architectural masterpiece erected with funds provided by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. In downtown Gloversville attend a performance and visit the museum at recently restored Glove Theatre.

Visit the colonial cemetery and New England common in the Kingsborough section of the city, surrounded by early homes, including reported stops on the Underground Railroad, and an 1838 church.
