I was going through our file cabinet the other day and found this copy of the Toll Gate menu. I remember "The Bucket" was a buck when I was in high school. Boy, that seems like a long time ago that I graduated from BCHS (1961). It's actually a giant post card. The back states "At the turn of the century, the old toll gate still stood astride the Albany-Schoharie plank road just east of the present TOLL GATE. Here, the toll gate keeper lived and collected $.05 cents for each one-horse rig and $.10 for a team or a load of hay passing through the building. The road leading to the right is the present road to Delmar." (From Barry Isbister)
