Local History Walking Tour: Washington Square Neighborhood

When: Wed., Sept. 20, 5-6:30 p.m. 2023

Join Emily Morry for a .83-mile walking tour of Washington Square, one of the oldest neighborhoods on Rochester's east side. The area serves as something of a microcosm of the city's history. Here, one finds echoes of Rochester's early years as a milling village, its Erie Canal boomtown days, and its rise as a site of technological innovation. Meet on the north side of the Rundel Memorial Building, near the corner of South Avenue and Broad Street. In the case of inclement weather, the tour may be cancelled. Registration is encouraged but not required for this free walking tour.

Price: Free
