With roots deep in farming and forestry, Lowville, located in Lewis County, retains a remarkable collection of nineteenth and early twentieth century buildings, illustrative of its rapid growth in population and wealth in the period.
We will begin with a tour of Constable Hall, a limestone, Federal style building dating to the early 1800s that was home to the Constable family for five generations. Lunch will be provided at the Lewis County Historical Society. In the afternoon we will take a tour of downtown Lowville stopping to walk through several house interiors, illustrating a range of architectural styles, with some particularly stunning Queen Anne homes. We will also stop at the National Register-listed Bateman Hotel. Our guide for the day will be Lowville town historian Charlotte Beagle.
The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m.
