Murder at Cherry Hill, by Louis C. Jones
$6.97 + 8% sales tax

The theme of the 2006 History Fair was in part a celebration of the recent third printing of Murder at Cherry Hill, by Louis C. Jones. Originally published in 1982, the book still holds wide appeal. Like so many of the stories at Cherry Hill, the murder has it all-drama, crisis, romance & history.

The author, until his death, was Director Emeritus of the New York State Historical Association. He co-founded the New York Folklore Society and wrote numerous books and folk art catalogues, including a history of Cooperstown, New York and a collection of ghost stories, titled Things that Go Bump in the Night (not surprisingly, a Cherry Hill ghost story is included in that publication).

The third release of Murder at Cherry Hill retails for $6.97 and is available in the Cherry Hill gift shop and other outlets, including the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center Shop and the Book Outlet at the Empire State Plaza.
