New Society of the Genesee Visit to Palmyra

Hello New Society members:

On August 13, the NSG will be visiting the museums that make up Historic Palmyra. These include Palmyra Historical Society, Palmyra Print Shop, William Phelps General Store and home, Alling Coverlet Museum and an Erie Canal Museum which will be newly opened that day. All are in walking distance from each other. Tour begins promptly at 10 AM from the historical society building. The first floor in all buildings is handicapped accessible but upper floors necessitate climbing some stairs.

Lunch for the group will be served at the Alling Coverlet Museum about 12:15 with that tour following. It will consist of a variety of Wraps, Potato Salad, Chips, Cookie and Beverages. Total price for the tours and lunch will be $20 per person with all proceeds supporting Historic Palmyra to maintain these great buildings.
