Craig Williams, who has operated the Butternut Hill Antique Show at Madison-Bouckville for about 20 years, said he's been pleased with the recent maturation of the show. “Last year was a real milestone,” he said, “and it was great to see the business community, the buying public and show personnel all pulling together to stage a successful event. The future is very bright for Madison-Bouckville."
The sponsors of the 2012 show are NBT Bank of Norwich, Clinton Tractor & Implement Co., Frontier Communications, Morris Tent Rentals, Cortland Pump & Equipment, Crossway’s Automotive Repair Service, Valley Propane Gas Corp., A ‘n’ W EZ Mart and Madison County, with special thanks to the Hamilton Business Alliance and the Northeast Classic Car Museum.
Bouckville, N.Y., is the seat of Madison County, an area filled with quaint villages, country inns, bed and breakfasts and, of course, antique shops. It retains its rural charm and still is home to many farms (and farmers’ markets). And for people who equate August with intense heat, have no fear: Bouckville is pleasant and mild in the summer – perfect weather for a show.
While in town, visitors might want to gazer out on the historic Chenango Canal, spend time with the family on horseback, experience the local corn mazes and pumpkin patches, enjoy fine dining at any one of a number of award-winning restaurants, or pack a picnic and find a special place in God’s country to relax and unwind. Bouckville has all these things and more.
