Gloversville Things to Do

    At the north end of town (in the area on State Street from Main Street to Kingsboro Street) you can take a little walk after seeing the Fulton Museum on Kingsboro.

    There are some very old buildings, the Gloversville cemetery with some very old headstones and the Glovervilles Commons. Just to the north of that is the country club. It is a nice, quiet area to just take a stroll and stretch your legs before you get back in the car and head off to your next stop.

    On the property that used to be Kingsborough Academy, now stands the Historical Societies' Fulton County Museum. The primary foci of the museum are the rememberance of the native American traditions in the region, the importance of Fulton county in the glove industry, and the general history of the county as it grew with the railroads.

    Exhibits generally available are: tanning and preparation of leather for making gloves, a mock-up of an old-time glove factory, an Iroquois longhouse and memorabilia from the Sacandaga amusement park. There are also displays about the local railroads, an old school room with desk and books, and artifacts about the history of the Gloversville fire department.

    In the town square of Gloversville, NY is a monument to those who died in the Civil War.

    It is there all by itself. Interesting!

    to get there:
    I-90 to the Fultonville/Fonda exit, north on route 30A through Fultonville and Fonda to Johnstown. Connect to Perry Street on the south side of Johnstown and drive through that town to Gloverstown (street name changes to Mill Street then Main Street.).

    Catchy name....

    There were not many places to eat on Main Street other than the pizza place (one wokery and one coffee house) as we buzzed through Gloversville.

    Pizza is good, service was 15 minutes (not bad) and price was cheap (under $10).

    So what more can you ask for a quick meal!

    Favorite Dish: aaaahhh.... uummm.... PIZZA

Gloversville Warnings and Dangers

    Gloversville, statistically, is not as safe as it looks in the day.
    It is slightly above average for violent crimes (murders, rapes, and especially assaults) and well above average for non-violent thefts (car break-ins, shop-lifting, home burglaries). Theft is by far the worst crime in the town.

    There are 29 registered sex offenders in Gloversville.
    To see details about these offenders, go to the website below.

    We traveled around the area in the day and did not feel at all threatened, so I have to assume that we either were in only the good areas or that problems occur at night.

    In any case, remember to lock your doors, keep your wallets in safe place and know where the kids are. Use common sense and you should have a good, safe time in Gloversville.
