The Geneva Historical Society's 2007 tour of homes, “Different Points of View, Homes Around Seneca Lake,” will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 9, featuring nearly a dozen homes and farms.
Eight private homes and three Geneva Historical Society properties — Rose Hill Mansion, Balmanno Cottage and The Johnston Farm — will be open for visitors. Participants will visit historic farmsteads and hear stories of early farming trends, along with learning how the properties are used today.
Advance tickets for the tour are $10 for Geneva Historical Society members and $12 for others; all tickets will be $15 the day of the tour.
Tickets can now be purchased at Prouty-Chew Museum, Rose Hill Mansion, the Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce office, Pedulla’s Liquor Store and at area branches of Five Star Bank, First Niagara Bank, Seneca Falls Savings Bank, Lyons National Bank, and Community Bank.
On tour day, tickets will be sold only at the Prouty-Chew Museum on South Main Street. Each ticket stub may be entered in a drawing for a gift basket from Derma Technologies Clinical Spa and Salon.
Lunch will be available at The Geneva Country Club on Route 14 south of the city for $10 per person, and tickets for the meal must be purchased by Wednesday, June 6 at the Prouty-Chew Museum on South Main Street.
