    For over 150 years people in Fulton County, New York have been involved in the glove and leather industry. Once upon a time the cities of Johnstown and Gloversville were considered to be “The glove-making capital of the world” and are to this day referred to locally as the “Glove Cities”. Johnstown is historically known as the home of Sir William Johnson, a Baronet who came to the British colony of New York and founded the town and named it John’s Town after his son John Johnson. Johnstown is also famous for being the birthplace of women’s rights activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Gloversville in it’s name reveals it’s main claim to fame, but many more lives have been touched over the past century and a half by the glovers, tanners, & leather dressers of the area and those in many affiliated local industries. Stroll down memory lane, learn about history or share stories and info about the Glovers and Tanners of Fulton County, NY. website.   Glovers & Tanners Web Site

    The Fulton Montgomery Quilt Barn Trail is located in upstate New York in the southern Adirondacks. The area is a mixture of agricultural landscape, rural countryside and small cities and villages. The FMBQT is in the process of growing throughout the area and encourage residents to join the community pride and individual artistry found in a quilt barn trail. Wooden barn quilt squares can be based on traditional patterns with individual influences making them unique to each property and community. The square is frequently mounted on a barn and is thus called a “barn quilt”, while the building may be called a “quilt barn”. When several of the squares are displayed throughout a community they create a “quilt barn trail”. They usually range in size from 4′ x 4′ to 8′ x 8′ although other sizes may be considered due to limited space. They are made from exterior grade materials to last many years. A material list is found on website.
