April Fools’ at Stone-Tolan

Join us for the second annual April Fools’ Tour at the Stone-Tolan Historic SiteThe “April Fools” have visited Stone-Tolan  – and have really messed things up for the staff! There are all sorts of things in there that don’t belong – and we need your help to figure it out. Adults and kids will hunt for things that are out of place in the 200 year old rooms, including the tavern room, kitchen, parlor bedroom, hallway and pantry. The April Fools’ Tour will take place on this one day only. After all, we’ll need to get everything back to its appropriate, historically correct settings in time for the spring school tours! Visit our website for complete details.

Sunday, April 1 | 12 noon-4 p.m. | Stone-Tolan Historic Site | 2370 East Ave., Rochester | $5 (children 16 & under, free!)
