    A Day in Historic Saratoga Springs

    APTNE will celebrate Summer 2018 at historic Saratoga, New York. The day will consist of two parts; starting first with a late morning tour of the Saratoga Automibile Museum; and then an afternoon of eating, drinking, and social activity at the nearby Saratoga Race Track. At the 2014 APTNE Symposium held in Boston, architect Elisabeth Bakker-Johnson presented From Vichy to V-8: The Conversion of a Bottling Plant to an Automobile Museum. Located in the National Historic Landmark-listed Saratoga Spa State Park, a major spa complex constructed between 1931 and 1935, the Bottling Plant bottled the distinctive, locally available mineral water for distribution for more than half a century. Remaining largely vacant since 1970 when bottling ceased, raw deteriorating building was converted to the Saratoga Automibile Museum in 2002, a project that Elisabeth helped facilitate. 

    Now, as the first part of a fun-filled Saturday in Historic Saratoga Springs, NY, Elisabeth will provide a guided tour of the project building and site. Whether you are a "motorhead", or just want to "Take the Waters", this will be a distinctive tour of a unique adaptive reuse project.

    After the museum tour is complete (between 12:00 - 12:30 p.m.), APTNE will reconvene in the early afternoon at nearby Saratoga Race Track. An APTNE member will be present to greet and provide you with your ticket. APTNE has reserved four tables (for 24 attendees) in the special picnic area to watch the horse racing, done at this venue since 1863. In addition to access to the special area, the 24 APTNE members will receive a race program. Feel free to stay as long as you like and until the last race is complete.
