Over the years we have enjoyed many hikes in the hills and ravines surrounding the Village of Naples; this Sunday we will take a tour of historical sites in the village. Town Historian John Murphy has kindly agreed to be our guide. We will meet at 2pm in the municipal parking lot behind the buildings on the west side of Main Street. Nearby are the Historical Society’s Morgan Hose Building and the Old Mill. We will move to Main Street and then north past the Maxfield Inn, Memorial Town Hall and on to the Cleveland House at the end of the village. The Hose Building and the 1794 Cleveland House will be open. Also, we can visit other sites such as the Indian and Pioneer burial ground.
People can either walk or car pool to the various stops along the way – it will be several miles round trip. In addition to dressing for the weather, if it looks like rain – you may want to have an umbrella with you. Don’t forget that daylight savings time begins on Sunday.
Our after hike social will be at The Hollerhorn Distillery, 8443 Spirit Run, Naples, NY 14512.
