2012 Photo Contest
Stillwater, NY - Do you love visiting your local National Park? Do you love taking photos? Would you like to visit Saratoga National Historical Park for free for an entire year? If you answered "yes" to any or all of these questions be sure to take advantage of Saratoga National Historical Park's photo contest, held from now through October 31, 2012.
Next year marks the 75th anniversary of Saratoga National Historical Park (Saratoga Battlefield, located on Route 4 and 32 in Stillwater) and we want to see the park through your lens. So get outside, explore the park, and take lots of photos! The winning photo will be featured on the park's 2013 Annual Pass and the photographer will receive a free 2013 Annual Pass.
Once all photos have been submitted, the winning photo will be decided by a panel of Saratoga NHP employees by November 9. For more information about this contest or other park events, please call Megan Stevens at 518.670.2982

Bread, pies, cookies --delicious! Baking in the 18th century was done in brick or clay "beehive" ovens. Heated by building a fire inside that was burned down to coals and ash, the heat stored in the brick and clay baked the food. A wooden plug covered the front opening and kept heat inside.
