Katonah, NY, a charming little hamlet and Bill O'Reilly Vs. Francesca and Sharkey!

Have a look at what Bill O'Reilly said about Francesca and Sharkey's new blog The Daily Wag

People are always curious where I like to shop and I thought it would be kind of fun to give you a little photo tour of the shopping area of Katonah, New York, which is about a five minute drive from my farm.  Like its surrounding hamlets, Katonah is full of history and is named for Chief Katonah, a Native American who sold the land to a group of English colonists.  Originally founded where the Cross River Reservoir is now situated, many structures in that hamlet were actually physically moved at the end of the nineteenth century.  Before flooding the area, more than fifty buildings were relocated from the old site to where many still stand, laboriously pulled by horses along timber tracks.  Today, Katonah is quaint and beautiful.  Please enjoy these photos.
