Durham is a small town located in the southeastern portion of the state near the Catskill State Park. It lies at the foot of Mt. Pisgah and is approximately 30 miles southwest of Albany and two hours from New York City. This is a historic, rural area scattered with many small towns and villages, or "hamlets" with names such as Medusa, Preston Hollow, Cooksburg, Freehold and Lambs Corner. The town of Durham was formed in the year 1790 and lies in one of the richest agricultural regions of the state. It's also an area with an abundance of historic spots, antique stores, farmer's markets and festivals, hiking, fishing and boating. The town of Durham contains the hamlets of Oak Hill, Cornwallville, South Durham and East Durham. East Durham is known as the "Emerald Isle of the Catsills," and is home to an annual Catskills Irish Arts Week and the Irish Cultural and Sports Center. Other nearby attractions include the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, Tanglewood Ranch in Cornwallville and the East Durham Irish Heritage Museum. East Durham also holds an annual Irish Festival, which features bagpipers, food, Irish music and crafts. Durham is just a short drive to Lake Otsego, also called Glimmerglass Lake, which offers more outdoor recreational opportunities.
