After more than two years Goshen Historic Track (GHT) and the Harness Racing Museum (HRM) plan a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception to celebrate the completion of the renovation of the Historic BOCES BARN ( now Fleming Barn) and to thank all of those who generously contributed to the undertaking.

On August 24th 2016 at approximately 6pm a horrific fire brokeout devastating much of the Historic structures and completely destroying its quaint Blacksmith shop. Rather than tear down the structure that once played host to President Ulysses S. Grant, the Board of GHT decided to rebuild that portion of the Barn for the benefit of the HRM  so that the Museum will now have a place to receive, store, and restore artifacts and exhibits.

Both the GHT and  HRM, along with a handful of volunteers, have been working tirelessly over the last two years to raise the necessary funds to complete the project and are now certain they have the the cash to pay the final bill. 

Accordingly, a ribbon cutting ceremony with a reception to follow in the new facility, will be held on September 29th beginning at 2pm to thank all of those who have donated to the project.

However, Goshen Historic Track is still accepting donations for the relocation and the rebuild of its Blacksmith shop. All donors will cordially be invited to the September 29th festivities.

Donations can be sent to Goshen Historic Track, 44 Park Place, Goshen, NY 10924.
