Honor Roll: Town of Berne (New York) World War II Honor Roll

South of Albany, New York, are the hill towns of southern Albany County. They include Berne, East Berne, Gallupville, Knox, and West Berne. It is beautiful rolling mountain country which includes many well maintained farms. Over 20 of the farm owners have painted what are called barn quilts on their barns or outbuildings. We downloaded a self-paced driving tour map and had a wonderful afternoon discovering this area of Albany county that seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of the state capital.

As we drove through the outskirts of Berne on Helderberg Trail (State Route 443), we passed the town park, which included a World War II Honor Roll.
