Summary

Summary

Bath is the home of America's oldest county fair. The commmunity was planned as western New York's "Queen City," a great metropolis, with broad tree-lined boulevards and spacious squares. Airplanes and ladders were made here, and four railroads-from the "champagne train" to the "kick and push" line-ran through town. Today, Bath remains a town of wide avenues, well-kept greens, dramatic cliffs, busy dairies, and the famous fair that has been held every year for nearly two centuries. Bath serves as the welcoming, wide-open back door to the Finger Lakes.
