May 2 – Tours of the Southworth Homestead

Posted by  //  April 20, 2015  //  Calendar of Events

The Dryden Town Historical Society is giving guided tours of the historic Southworth Homestead located at 14 North Street, in Dryden, New York. The Southworth Homestead was built in 1836 by John Southworth and was the home of Southworth descendents until 2011 when Rebecca Wood Simpson died leaving the property to the historical society. The homestead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and represents the influence of the Southworth family in the development of Dryden and their involvement with Cornell University and the New York State legislature. The home is full of beautiful and fascinating family mementoes that provide a glimpse of day to day rural life over successive generations.

Tours will be given at 10 AM, 11 AM and 12 Noon on the following dates: May 2nd, June 6th, July 11th, August 1st, September 5th, and October 3rd. Each tour takes approximately one hour and comes with an admission charge of $5.00. For more information contact: Gina Prentiss at 844-4691.
