Visiting Cazenovia, New York --- #1 of 12
Tuesday, October 5, 2010
According to Wikipedia, Cazenovia was established in 1794 by John Lincklaen, a Dutch naval officer. The town is named after Theophilus Cazenove, an agent with the land company.
There's a beautiful historic district to explore, with art galleries and shops.
One of my ancestors, a man named David Sabin, was born in Cazenovia in 1807, and he left to settle in Utah during the 1840s. During our visit, I looked for buildings that he might have seen, and I found quite a few.
One of them was the Lincklaen House, which was established in 1836. We had lunch there, at the Seven Stone Steps Tavern. It's beautiful inside, too, and the food was delicious.
