CGP Professors Will Walker and Cindy Falk, center left, orient history buffs who this afternoon are participating in something of a historic event – the revival of a long-dormant self-guided walking-tour of Cooperstown, dormant since The Otesaga ran out of maps a few years ago, according to organizer Rich McCaffery. McCaffery told the gathering that repeated demand for the map inspired him to collaborate with Otesaga Marketing Manager Meg Kiernan in preparing a new map, and with the Cooperstown Graduate Program in today’s walk.  In the orientation, Falk pointed out that, while the walk began at The Otesaga, Judge Cooper focused early development east of Pioneer Street (then West Street) and south of Lake Street (then Front Street).  To the left of Walker is Tom Heitz, Otsego town historian.  To the right of Falk are Karen and Randy Crissman and their chihahua Chili, recently moved to Cooperstown.  The crowd also included Janet Potter, president, Greater Oneonta Chamber of Commerce.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
