Walking History Tour Walk and Talk

Saturday, September 8

City Historian, Julie Madlin will take you on a walk back in time providing interesting historical facts about our City, the buildings, and their former owners/occupants. The tour will end at City Hall where you can walk the halls on the main floor to view the historical photos that adorn the walls. Light refreshments will be available. The State Street area was part of the city’s business district, the site of the first bank in St. Lawrence County, and also the home of many prominent citizens, including Congressman John Fine, Louis Hasbrouck and George Hall. The program will make use of QR technology to make this part of our local history more accessible. Orange signs will be posted on the street with QR Codes. Short informational videos, interactive photographs, and podcasts created by the city historian will be linked to each code, so program attendees will be able to access the history of each building by using their smartphones. This tour will be accessible online as well.
