USA Today ran this article on Santanoni on Aug 25, 2013 in their travel section   Good to promote our history and hesitage!  And in a national paper.  Good work!Then the article was picked up by the Hudson Valley Connisseur, “The region’s authority on refined living.”  A friend of mine from Saugerties gave me a copy of the article.
