Schedule of New (Spring 2013) Westcott Sundays Walking Tours
I am happy to post the schedule for four upcoming (free!) walking tours of Syracuse's Eastside in areas that are part of the greater Westcott Neighborhood. This spring I'll repeat the tour of Scottholm given last fall, and offer three entirely new tours.
As always, these tours are the result of research and discovery - in progress - and that means a "repeat" tour may be substantially different than a previous version. I also rely on information and stories from longtime neighborhood residents and property owners - as well as those raised in the neighborhood who have moved away. If you have information about your house or the neighborhood in general that you would like to share, please let me know.
