  The 52nd Annual Stockade Walkabout offered “A Walk Through History 1661-1795” as a way to celebrate the 350 years of Schenectady’s evolution from a Dutch colonial village to an American City.  I didn’t make it to every Tour or History Stop, church, or watering hole [see the Map], but I took quite a few photos, and you can see the ones I like the most in the Slideshow below.  As always, I apologize for not knowing everyone’s name.

Sincere thanks goes out to all of the people who worked hard on this special Stockade event — including organizers, directors, actors, storytellers, musicians, volunteers — and to the sponsors who helped make it happen.
