Have you wondered what our city looked like when the Erie Canal still ran through Syracuse? Can you imagine our roads as trolley tracks? If you want to take a walk back through history, join us for the Hawley-Green House Tour on Saturday, June 18th.
Nestled in a triangle between Lodi Street, James Street, and Burnet Avenue, the Hawley-Green Historic District houses some of the earliest – and finest – residential Victorian architecture in Syracuse. This is your chance to tour the neighborhood, learn the stories behind these great buildings, and see what historic features are still inside some of the homes today.
Tours will be departing from the First English Lutheran Church (501 James Street) every hour from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Over the course of a 1 mile walk, you will get to tour eight unique Hawley-Green homes and learn the rich history of the neighborhood.
Tickets are available online and in person at NEHDA, 101 Gertrude Street.
