The Clark Family

No mention of the Village would be complete without mentioning the Clark Family. The family, whose fortune originated with a half ownership of the patent for the Singer Sewing Machine, has resided in the Village since the mid 19th century. A Singer treadle sewing machine Singer Corporation is a United States of America manufacturer of sewing machines, first established as I.M. Singer & Co. ...


Their large property, interests assembled over the century and a half, (today held through trusts, foundations, and various holdings) are reflected in the ownership of greater than 10,000 acres (40 km²) largely undeveloped in and around the greater Cooperstown community.


A sampling of Clark holdings in the Village include the Otesaga, the Cooper Inn, Clark Estates, The Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home, as well as founding and retained interests in The Baseball Hall of Fame and The Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital.


Cooperstown, in greater community sense, gets a continued large amount of monetary support from The Clark Foundation. It has donated money for a variety of causes including decorating the village, education scholarships, grants to non-for-profits as well as some village services. As a good steward of the community the family has previously donated land for the central and high school (formerly stables) as well as that for parks such as Fairy Springs and Council Rock.


Jane Forbes Clark II, the primary family heir today, has continued that commitment by purchasing strategic real estate to ensure the preservation of the entry points to the Village, as well as overseen the real estate expansion of the various Clark holdings.


Business district changes

On a superficial basis the downtown commercial district looks today not unlike it did in the 1970s. However like many small communities impacted by changing tastes and growth of big box stores from more urban areas Cooperstown's downtown has undergone significant change over recent decades.


Through the 1970s, Main Street was still home to no fewer than five grocery stores, including Danny's Market, Pic N Pay, Victory Markets, and an A&P. Western Auto had a branch on Main Street. JJ Newberry's had a two story five and dime with a counter food area. Smalley's Theatre, originally a stage theater, had a single screen across from a Farm & Home store.

Western Auto Supply Company is a chain of automobile parts stores. ... J.J. Newberrys was an American five and dime store chain in the twentieth century. ...


The village today despite the growing needs of the residents both year round and seasonal as well as the daily visitors has fewer traditional services. Once boasting as many as half dozen gasoline sations, today within the village there are two. Traditional grocery stories have been reduced to just one. Hardware stores such as Western Auto, McGowan's and Farm & Home are also gone with an Ace Hardware replacing their role just outside of the village limits. Smalley's Theatre is now a collection of baseball memorabilia shops. Newberry's has been replaced with a single floor "General Store", the stairs to the downstairs floor boarded over. Main Street now has primarily stores for the tourist rather than for residents of Cooperstown.


Architecture

For such a small Village with limited direct access to large urban areas and professional architects there are significant residential, commercial and religious structures to be found with many in excellent condition today.


Several lovely residences related to the founding Cooper family can be found such as Edgewater and Heathcote while Otsego Hall, James Fenimore Cooper's residence along with his Chalet cottage have been lost.

Fynmere, a grand stone manor house from the early 20th century, erected by Cooper heirs on the eastern edge of the Village limits, was designed by noted architect Charles A. Platt was donated to the Presbyterian Church as a retirement home. It was razed in 1979.

Residences, business, and Foundation properties related to the Clark family abound within and on the edges of the Village. From the original family seat of Fernleigh to the 1928 stone Georgian manor house of West Hill serving that role today the properties are exceptionally well cared for. Fernleigh is a Second Empire stone mansion designed by New Jersey architect James Van Dyke and built in 1869.

Reynolds and Bryant Fleming (a landscape design professor at Cornell University) to design new gardens for Fernleigh[4]. Cornell redirects here. ...


Other Clark manor homes - such as that of Robert Sterling Clark and brother F Ambrose Clark with his Iroquois Farm - have been razed over the last 30 years. Edward Severin Clark built a farm complex at Fenimore Farm in 1918 (today the Farmers Museum) and his stone manor house in 1931 which was given after his death to the New York State Historical Association and today serves as the Fenimore Art Museum. Other structures such as the Baseball Hall of Fame, Otesaga Hotel, Clark Estate Office, Kingfisher Tower, Bassett Hospital, and The Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home are exemplary elements of the Village's architectural wealth.

The prominent Bowers family Lakelands manor - as well as neighboring Mohican Lodge - and their former estate of Willowbrook, built 1818, now the Cooper Inn represent other affluence of wealth by residents who erected grand homes. The Bowers family received the land patent extending from current-day Bowerstown to very near Cherry Valley, New York upon which John Myer Bowers built the Bowers homestead Lakelands in 1804. Woodside Hall, on the eastern extreme of the Village proper, was built c. 1829 by Eben B. Morehouse and owned by among several wealthy individuals. This included financeer Walter C. Stokes of New York City in 1895. His son, Walter Watson Stokes, served in the New York state Senate from 1933 to 1952.

Financer William T. Hyde acquired in 1916 a lakeside property north of Fenimore Farm known as Glimmerglen from the Constable family[7]. The manor house burned to the ground shortly thereafter and was rebuilt by society architect Alfred Hopkins who also designed a new farm complex, gate house, Winter House, and assorted dependcies.
