Historic Stone House Walking Tours

May is National Historic Preservation Month! To celebrate, join Oswego’s Historic Preservation Commission on an educational walking tour of the village’s historic stone houses to celebrate historic preservation in Oswego.

Many of Oswego’s stone houses are some of the oldest structures found in the village, most of them built between the 1840s and the 1860s, each with its own unique architectural style and history.

The Historic Stone House Walking Tour will provide a unique opportunity to learn about these historic structures through a brief video screening at the Little White School Museum followed by a guided walking tour of five nearby stone houses and including opportunities to enter a few of the homes and listen to stories and lessons from the property owners themselves.

This tour is perfect for Oswego residents that currently live in historic homes and are interested in preservation and restoration, history and architecture enthusiasts, and preservation students and professionals.

Register online at www.eventbrite.com/e/historic-stone-house-walking-tour-tickets-60075843465.  

This event is free but registration is required and space is very limited. Given the historic nature of the homes, not all homes on the tour will be ADA accessible. Walking is required to get to the tours sites, and participants will be asked to sign a waiver in order to participate. Participants under 18 are invited to attend, however, a parent or guardian must sign a waiver and is responsible for the participant. Parking is available at the Litter While School Museum.
