Join us as we walk along what once were woodland trails, rutted cart-tracks, and cobbled streets, mindful of the rutting deer, trundling wagons, and speeding surreys, as we meet the spirits of the past.
The tour is a leisurely guided walk spanning approximately 45 minutes, where you will hear about the rich and fascinating history of our fair city, with tales touching upon many important events in local history such as the Iroquois Settlement along Cayuga Lake, Cornell University and Ithaca College history, silent movie stars, as well as stories from the 'bad old days' of fun and excitement in the city's West End in the days of the Erie Canal and later. Tour goers will encounter reenactments and vignettes along the way.
