Love the pics. I always like to drive by the old implement dealer location (now a restaurant) where my dad did most of his business. One question - I"ve always been curious about the farm being called "Clinton Camp" when the family name is Fassett. ADB-IA

Well my friend, the name was derived quite simply. Back during the revolutionary war days, General James Clinton assembled his Continental Army from his starting point, Fort Tyconderoga, traveling to and past our farm, gathering up local militia to link up with George Washington's troops in Valley Forge. The road name is the Continental Rd. We are on the north end of Otsego Lake (The origin of the Susquehana River. Clinton made camp where the family homested is, Thus Clinton Camp Farm. Here is where the overland march ended and where the treck down the Susquehana started. Militia men built wooden rafts from timber around these parts and started their historic jurney dowh the Susquehana from here. linking up with Col. Butler's 4th Penn. Regiment, and continuing on to support George Washington's troops in Valley Forge.
Pics are of the historical marker at the farm and a monument directly across US.RT.20, from our dealership, then known as the "Great Western Turnpike" Linking the deep inland seaport of Fort Orange, now Albany, NY. to the expanding west.
