Hilltop League Winner

2019 West Again, New York, Road Trip, States

At the Stormville Rest Area westbound I-84 near Fishkill, New York just east of the Hamilton Fish Bridge over the Hudson River, we spied something that looked out of place. Perched atop a fence post was a bowling trophy bearing a brass plaque that reads: Winner Hilltop League Summer ’67 Who won this trophy fifty-two years ago? Where did the Hilltop League play? Is it still in existence? Why is the trophy here now? How long has it been here? Was it deliberately left? As part of a game? To make people as questions? If so, it’s working. In any case it was a fun find on a longish travel day between West Greenwich, RI and Jonestown, Pennsylvania.

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
