History Walk and Talk: The Byway, on 6/29, 11am
Learn about the mills and associated houses on the stretch of Fall Creek alongside 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.
Here is a map from 1866 showing Forest Home, then known as Free Hollow, with houses and mills.
