Third Hilltown tour a success
The Enterprise –– Michael Koff
Protecting the land: A gargoyle nestled in flowers protects the Breitenbachs’ castle, as the owner shows two visitors, at top left, the history of the place. The castle, perched on the hill above Altamont, also holds the studio for artist T. E. Breitenbach who rents out the castle he built, for weddings and other special occasions. The castle was one of the stops on the annual “Discover the Hilltowns” tour, sponsored by the Helderberg Hilltowns Association.
To the Editor:
The third annual “Discover the Hilltowns: Farms and Artisans Tour” on Sept. 14 and 15 was very well attended, as more people head for the Hilltowns each year for this self-guided driving adventure in the countryside.
I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who participated: the farmers, artisans, and other contributors and their families who welcomed the public to their farms, homes and studios; the folks who came out to visit our area and support our rich variety of colorful, fascinating and instructive destinations along the way; and the Helderberg Hilltowns Association members who make this fun and worthwhile event happen.
Many thanks to all for making this such a success, and for showing our guests how much we have to be proud of here in the Hilltowns!
