Local historian and story teller, Shirley Sutton, shares in depth knowledge about the fascinating character who hiked Westchester County, New York, and parts of Connecticut in the 1800's. Speaking very little, the Leather Man communicated his needs with hand gestures. Dressed in his leather suit he was both a curious and fearful sight. Town residents grew to expect his appearances accommodating his simple requests and often giving him leather scraps, tobacco, and sometimes money. 2:00 P.M., A. B.
