This bus tour of places in the Village of Ossining that are
mentioned in the first few seasons of the
Mad Men TV series is part fantasy and part local history. Accordingly, we will be going to the sites that connect the fictional Don Draper with the real “Bard of the Suburbs” John Cheever. Among these is the Ossining Train Station where each man boarded their trains to Manhattan; Sing Sing Prison where Cheever taught writing and where some think Draper should have been locked up; the Draper “residence” on “Bullet Hole Road”; Reservoir Park a place that Betty Draper hoped to save; the Ossining Historical Society Museum where Cheever was a member and where the show’ s creators mined the files to make to make the show as authentic as possible; Brookside School where the Draper kids excelled at their studies; Trinity Church where Cheever sought peace and Draper should have too. And finally, on to Keenan House where there has always been a bar of some kind since the late 19th century. This is a post tour the opportunity to relax and taste some of the 60’s era cocktails and finger-food that that Cheever and Draper certainly enjoyed.
