about

Located in the northwest corner of Schoharie County, Sharon was established in 1797 after Palatine German and Dutch families had settled in the area, replacing the Iroquois in the 18th century. Set in rolling hills with magnificent vistas over the Mohawk Valley, the area's mineral springs drew native people and Europeans to bathe in the health-promoting waters. The spa era of grand hotels and wealthy guests gave way to a slow but steady decline around 1900; however, from the early 1990s, the town has enjoyed a renaissance with the arrival of creative artists and entrepreneurs, including The Fabulous Beekman Boys, whose reality television series showcased Sharon, linking past to present. The couple lives in the mansion of prominent early resident William Beekman, the first judge of Schoharie County and the owner of the first mercantile.
