Adirondack Museum acquires Keeseville farm stand

Adirondack Museum acquires Keeseville farm stand


KEESEVILLE — In their large gardens, the Santors grew it all — corn, tomatoes, peppers, green beans, yellow beans, squash of all kinds, radishes, onions and melons.

"It's river-bottom land back here," Tommy said. "It's very rich. Deep, good soil."

Alfred ran the stand until the mid-'80s when Tommy took it over. He was assisted by his brother, Carmen; an uncle; nieces; nephews; and hired help.

"We had various floods. The river broke through the tail end of our garden. That was in '96. It did quite a bit of damage," Tommy said. "We put it back together, and I did it one more year. 1997 was it."
