Celebrated Upstate New York author Chuck D'Imperio takes readers on a unique tour of some of the most fascinating and little-known historic homes across the state.

Each one has an intriguing story, and D'Imperio invites you to learn not only about the homes but also about the influential people who lived in them. With detailed information on visiting hours, directions, and the author's own notes, this guidebook is essential reading for all New York State history buffs and the ideal companion for your next Upstate road trip.
