Walk and Talk: The Byway.

Led by Bruce Brittain, sponsored by Historic Ithaca.

“The Byway is a former loop of Forest Home Drive along Fall Creek in the Town of Ithaca. This short stretch of road has the highest density of nineteenth century mill remnants and mill-era houses in Forest Home.”

Meet at the end of The Byway that is adjacent to the downstream bridge. No charge, but registration is encouraged.
