Town Guide #16: Fleischmanns

Welcome to the sixteenth edition of our HUTS Town Guide Series. Today we’re exploring Fleischmanns, this historic town was once a summer colony for wealthy aristocrats in the 1800s. You can still see evidence of the past in the many well preserved Victorian homes in the town set right at the base of the popular Belleayre Mountain.

What to do outside:

The Pakatakan Farmers’ Market known as the Round Barn Market is an outdoor activity for those of you who are not hitting the slopes at Belleayre Mountain. This is a great place to enjoy breakfast or brunch, as there are many food vendors with picnic tables to rest. Not to forget the variety of local and organic farmers alongside artisans selling anything from handmade jewelry, soaps, quilts, wool, hand carved wood goods and more.
