Due to popular demand, we have added one more

Join us on Wednesday, September 15, at noon for the Historic Downtown Tour. This popular 50-minute stroll takes place on level sidewalks and is a great introduction to local history and historic events in downtown Elmira. Join us as we share more than 17 stories from CCHS’s weekly blogposts along the way. Good for locals or out of town guests.
Tickets are $3 for members and $8 for nonmembers and include admission to the museum. Tours are first come, first reserved, and space is limited, so we recommend reservations. Call 607-734-4167 to reserve your spot.
