A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.

Hear how the tireless movement of Susan B. Anthony’s quest as a social reformer set afoot the controversial movement of the right to allow women to vote.  We will summon the sensational accounts of famous trials as well as events held here in Canandaigua causing unwittingly, and reverberating repercussions then…and now.  See the exact spot where the time-honored tradition of peace and friendship has taken place every year since 1794.  And what could be more unsettling than to discover one of the Lincoln assassin plotters passing right through this charming little city!

Canandaigua Historical Walking Tour
A Return To Yesteryear

Come see with us as we wax nostalgic to recall the days of yesteryear.  This fact-based (2) hour tour walking tour will take you to and fro as we cover captivating stories and timely events of days gone by.  Along the way we will see and hear about multiple homes and buildings in and around Canandaigua’s unusually wide main street district that foretells of history in the making.
