Hyde Hall, located within what is now Glimmerglass State Park, is one of the most special historic properties found in the Cooperstown region.  Built over a period of time between 1817 and 1834, the home contains much of the original furnishing and artifacts from the original builder, George Clarke (1768-1835).  Use the links below and in the sidebar to learn more about Hyde Hall and the former estate property.  Explore some of our collection items here, and check back often as we are always adding new content!
