HISTORY NORTH, SOUTH, EAST & WEST – VILLAGE WALKING TOURS WITH PITTSFORD HISTORIAN

Come learn the stories behind some of Pittsford’s most beautiful and recognizable historic buildings!  Pittsford Town and Village Historian Audrey Johnson will conduct a different one-hour historic walking tour of Pittsford Village on each Monday in June (see below for schedule and tour details).  The tours are free and open to the public; participants should meet at 11:00am in front of Town Hall (11 South Main Street).  Each tour will cover a different area of the Village and will finish at noon – in plenty of time for lunch on your own at one of the Village’s many restaurants, should you choose to do so!
