The Birthplace of Baseball

The Baseball Hall of Fame

The beautiful Landmark Inn sits within an easy ten-minute walk to the Cooperstown National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Was Cooperstown the birthplace of baseball? Well… yes… it… was. Didn’t Abner Doubleday live here? Didn’t a local farmer unearth the original baseball with his plow? And didn’t the Mills Commission determine in 1907 – after a lunchtime of exhaustive and unbiased study –
that Cooperstown was indeed THE birthplace of baseball? You’re darn right they did! Oh, sure, we hear the naysayers, but let’s be honest… wouldn’t you rather be celebrating baseball in beautiful Cooperstown than … ahem…Hoboken? Yes, you absolutely would. See, like we keep saying… it’s all about the stories! We welcome you to our Cooperstown bed and breakfast.
