Landmark Travels: Perry & Pike Summer Day Trip
August 17, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 9:30 PM
We’ll take a small group south to visit Perry and discover the strides this charming village has made in preservation, while becoming a hub for independent artists. We’ll enjoy lunch and tour the Silver Lake Institute and Epworth Hall. This unique site started as a religious revival camp and is now a summer community of late 19th century cottages and historic buildings from its religious revival days, situated on the shore of Silver Lake.
Then for something completely different, we’ll end with a late afternoon at the Wyoming County Fair – on the Pike Fairgrounds, one of the last 19th century rural county fairgrounds remaining in New York State. Here you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to a classic country fair. We’ll view the livestock, agricultural and art exhibits in the vintage structures, and indulge in your favorite fair food – perhaps even their famous chicken barbeque! We’ll cap the evening with the draft horse and pony competition – or maybe the local talent contest, before returning to Rochester mid-evening.
