Tales From The Tunnicliff Inn
A two hundred year old Cooperstown village inn steeped in history, looming in mystery and renowned for local lore; with hundreds of stories encased within its brick walls, author Bill Waller unearths some of these these, weaves in some local folklore and even takes you to the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction ceremony by his fictional accounts of some of the Tunnicliff’s interesting guests. Hanging on the walls are classic old photos that show this historic Inn through its long history. These pictures are a springboard to launch you into a series of adventures where you can meet murderers and ghosts; lovers and wanderers; treasure hunters and local characters that will chill you on a warm spring night, warm you on a chilly fall afternoon and entertain you with surprise endings. Tales From the Tunnicliff Inn will take you from an 1800’s crime syndicate to a prohibition speakeasy; from a drunken wedding guest to strangers falling in love, a trip that you can enjoy as you wind through these tales; best read curled up in one of the Tunnicliff’s welcoming rooms or beneath you own down-filled quilt.
