On the Road: Auto Stock Your Vehicle


t’s time to get out of town! We’ve been cooped up for months and the road is calling. After you’ve done a well-serviced check-up of your car, don’t forget the helpful items you need to take along. Even a well-maintained vehicle can break down, so it’s advisable to put together an emergency roadside kit to carry with you. A cell phone tops the list of suggested emergency kit contents since it allows you to call for help when and where you need it.

Suggested emergency roadside kit contents include: • Cell phone and charger • First aid kit • Flashlight and extra batteries • Flares and a white flag • Jumper cables • Tire pressure gauge • Jack (and ground mat) for changing a tire • Work gloves and a change of clothes • Basic repair tools and some duct tape (for temporarily repairing a hose leak) • Water, paper towels and a garbage bag for cleaning up • Nonperishable food, drinking water, and medicines • Extra windshield washer fluid • Maps • Emergency blankets, towels and coats • Masks and hand sanitizer

Finger Lakes Cider Alliance and the Finger Lakes Cider Trail New York grows more apple varieties than any other state. With nearly 700 growers and 10,000,000+ trees, the New York Apple Association says enough apples are produced each year to bake 500 million apple pies! Before the mid-19th century, the “term” cider referred to fermented (alcoholic, or “hard”) cider. Hard cider was a staple of the English colonials’ diet. Unsure of the water supply, settlers immediately planted orchards and hard cider was the drink of the day. Then came Prohibition, urbanization and an influx of other settlers who preferred beer. Hard cider all but disappeared from the menu until the late 20th century, when artisanal hard cider making began a renaissance. Today you can discover cideries, tasting rooms, restaurants, and retailers along the growing Finger Lakes Cider Trail. These venues have local ciders on their menus, on their shelves, and on tap. Visit the Cider Alliance website for a list of

a matter of time before interest in fine spirits prompted many local wine makers and farmers to experiment with distilling. Now more than a half dozen distilling operations throughout the region are crafting impressive local spirits. Myer Farm Distillers offers a taste of field to flask production, using certified organic grain from their own farm, one of the oldest and largest organic grain farms in the Northeastern United States, to craft distill a unique range of spirits. Finger Lakes Distilling near Seneca Lake specializes in gin, whisky, brandy, vodka, grappa and liqueurs. Other facilities with distilling operations include Hidden Marsh Distillery (specializing in Vodka made from mead), Knapp Winery, Swedish Hill Winery, Rock Stream Vineyards, Six Mile Creek Vineyards and Beak and Skiff Apple Farm (making vodka from apples).

Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance is an organization of cheese producers who make artisan cheeses from milk produced at their family dairy farms. Treat your palate to everything from English style raw milk cheddars, cheese curd, gouda and Swiss types from dairy cow milk to blue cheeses, chevre and feta from goat and sheep milk. The Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance is made up of 12 working family farms and producers, each creating their own brand of artisanal and farmstead cheeses. In addition, several Associate Members support the Alliance -- from wineries and stores that carry their cheese, to accommodations that send their guests out for an “on-thefarm” experience. Find the farms’ visiting hours on the website’s Hours Page, and directions on the Map Page at the Cheese Alliance website listed here. The Alliance, however, advises that you always call ahead because, as working farms, hours of operation vary from farm-to-farm and season-to-season. Trail representatives also suggest that you not try to do the whole trail in one day. Go to the website, look at the map and plan your route by grouping four or five creameries together. Again, be sure to call ahead to confirm availability. The popular Annual Finger Lakes

Cheese Festival, organized by the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance, will take place on July 24th at Sunset Creamery, 1618 County Route 15, Odessa. It is a fun-filled family day offering cheeses from Alliance members, plus homemade jams, jellies, baked goods, fresh produce, art and games for the kids. Wine, beer and cider tastings, pairings and cooking demos are available throughout the day. Check the website for directions, details and COVID protocols.

amillus, a popular suburb west of Syracuse, was part of the former Central New York Military Tract. Industrial development was promoted by the Erie Canal and the railroad line linking Syracuse to Auburn. Today you will find an interesting look at Erie Canal history at the Erie Canal Park and Sims Store Museum. Of historic note: On January 17, 1852, a call for a Free-Soil meeting in Camillus Village pulled in three hundred and thirty-six document signers. The meeting is claimed as the first in the United States distinctly created on the lines of what later became the Republican Party. It opposed the Fugitive Slave law and the admission of slave states. The Camillus area offers great shopping opportunities in three distinct areas, including: Township 5, a multiuse center; The Town of Camillus along West Genesee Street (Route 5) with top name retailers at Camillus Commons and Fairmount Fair Shopping Center; and the Village of Camillus with unique shops and boutiques.

Bullhead Point Pavilion, Fulton



he City of Fulton was named after Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat. The Oswego River runs through the city, which was once filled with factories and mills, making use of the rapids and fast-flowing water for power. The two sides of the river have long been connected by two bridges -- one known locally as the “upper bridge” (Broadway/NY State Route 3) and the other more commonly known as the “lower bridge” (Oneida St.) The Nestlé plant in Fulton (closed in 2003) was the first chocolate factory in North America under the Swiss name. The Crunch bar and Nestlé’s Quik were both born in Fulton. The Miller Brewing Company operated a plant in the Town of Volney, (just outside Fulton city limits) from the mid-1970s until its closure in 1994. As Fulton works toward recovery from these economic setbacks, the Broadway Commercial District shines brightly. The 8 buildings on West Broadway between W. 1st and W. 2nd Streets were listed in the State Register of Historic Places and in the National Register of Historic Places in 2020. The Canal Landing Gazebo in the same area offers a pleasant place to view the river and the canal, plus summer concerts, the popular Fulton Jazzfest and the Fulton Farmers Market. For updates on schedules and COVID restrictions, visit

Oswego Canal

Lock 02 and Lock 03 are located in Fulton The Oswego Canal, opened in 1828, is 23.7 miles in length, and connects the Erie Canal at Three Rivers to Lake Ontario at Oswego. The canal has a depth of 14 ft, with seven locks spanning the 118 ft change in elevation. The modern canal essentially follows the route of the Oswego River, canalized with locks & dams. Three locks, with a total lift of 45.6 feet take boats over what had been a steep set of rapids at the city of Oswego. This is the only route from the Atlantic/ Hudson River system to Lake Ontario fully within the United States.

Canal Landing Gazebo & “Old Downtown” Fulton

South First St., Fulton The Gazebo, a bandstand in the “old downtown” area of Fulton, overlooks the Oswego River and one of two locks in the New York State Barge Canal portion of the waterway.

Depot Park, Hammondsport


Hammondsport Sights

ocated at the southern tip of Keuka Lake, Hammondsport is a charming, low-key village just right for a stress-free summer get-away. Water views are never far from sight. The village square, shops in town (Lime Berry, Scandia House, Browsers, Keuka Artisan Bakery and more), plus antique stores, nearby wineries and breweries, great historic museums and plenty of opportunities for beach and water activities offer visitors choices that led Budget Travel magazine readers to name Hammondsport “America’s Coolest Small Town.” Hammondsport’s first nickname was “The Wine Village,” as it became a center for the New York Wine industry and is one of the oldest continuous makers of wine in the United States. It began in 1829 when the Rev. William Bostwick successfully cultivated Catawba and Isabella vines behind his rectory to produce communion wine. In 1860, Charles Champlin founded Pleasant Valley Wine Company, which became the first federally licensed winery in America. More than a dozen wineries surround Keuka Lake and comprise the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. Several iconic wineries, including award-winning Dr. Konstantin Frank’s Vinifera Wine Cellars, Bully Hill Vineyards Winery and Heron Hill Winery, are minutes from Hammondsport. Known as the Cradle of Aviation, Hammondsport is home to the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum. American motorcycle designer, manufacturer and recognized expert on gasoline engines, Glenn Hammond Curtis resided in Hammondsport. He was the first person to introduce aviation into the public eye when he flew his “JuneBug” over Keuka Lake on July 4, 1908. Curtiss is also known as the “Father of Naval Aviation,” and for many other pioneering inventions he created in Hammondsport.

Homer Village Green, Homer



es, Homer was named for the ancient Greek poet, a reflection of the early American predilection for the classics. It was first settled in 1791 along and near the banks of the Tioughnioga River. Current residents take pride in the upkeep of some pristine examples of the Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate and Queen Anne style homes that line the village’s historic Main Street. In the center of the Old Homer Historic District lies the Village Green, a large, grassy, tree-filled area used for community events, festivals, fairs, and leisure activities. The Homer Farmer’s Market takes place here every Saturday from May – October. Visit the boutiques, gift shops, bakery and eclectic restaurants on Main Street and stroll the green for a great summer day.

Summer Events in Homer: July 4: 26th Annual Reading of the United States Declaration of Independence. “All are invited to gather at the Center for the Arts of Homer, 72 South Main Street, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 4th, to commemorate the first charter of our nation’s liberty. Charles W. Jermy, Jr. and Charles W. Jermy III will recount the circumstances that led up to the Declaration’s adoption in 1776 and talk briefly about the document’s structure. After describing the fates of some of the signers, they will invite those in attendance to read short portions of the Declaration aloud. Following the reading, a cannon will be fired and the bells in the buildings surrounding the Homer Green will be rung fifty times. The Center’s 1874 37-inch Meneely Bell is expected to join the other four bells for the first time in several years. Plan to participate in this important com-

Montour Falls

She-Qua-Ga Falls, Montour Falls

Montour Falls:

The “Valley of Tumbling Waters”


urrounded by hills rising 1,000 feet, Montour Falls is the focal point for seven natural glens that radiate from its borders, with more than a score of waterfalls to see. The 165-foot waterfall located on the west end of the village is of special note as it seems like it should flow right down Main Street, a great backdrop for the specialty shops you will enjoy browsing. History permeates the village. Montour Falls was once the site of a Seneca Indian tribe, which was destroyed along with 40 other Amerindian villages by Sullivan’s army in 1779. The Iroquois Long House Council Chambers of the Haudenosaunee was located here. The village was named after Queen Catherine Montour, a prominent Native American woman of Seneca heritage who lived at the village site during the 18th century. Montour Falls was an important trade stop and travel hub, playing an important role on the Seneca Lake inlet when the Chemung Canal was built in 1827 to connect Seneca Lake with the Chemung River. Homes in the Historic District offer a glimpse into this era.

Montour Falls raising the entire bridge a foot, increasing the height of the portal entrances and adding two additional trusses. By 1998, a large-scale restoration included abutment and bank stabilization, new decking and roofing, a pedestrian bridge, the Musser overlook and a picnic area. Located close to Montour Falls, make a stop and enjoy this picturesque touch of history.

She-Qua-Ga Falls

Dropping 156-feet into the “Glorious T,” She-quaga Falls seems to flow right into the heart of Montour Falls. Located at the intersection of Main and

Genesee Streets, it is a big part of the Montour Falls Historic District. Two dozen structures line Genesee Street, including the courthouse, sheriff’s office, the lovely Montour Memorial Library and many well-kept 19th-century homes. Known as Tumbling Waters to Native Americans, She-qua-ga Falls is often referred to simply as Montour Falls by those having difficulty pronouncing the native name. From the park, built at the base of the falls, banks of lights create a beautiful night setting.

Strategic Oswego:

The Great Lakes First Port of Call


o the north of the Finger Lakes on the shores of Lake Ontario, you will find the Port City of Oswego, the first Port of Call on the Great Lakes from the Atlantic Ocean. Oswego’s strategic location has given the city a rich place in United States history, from the days before European settlement and continuing through the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Abolition era’s Underground Railroad activities and World War II. It all comes to life in the city’s museums and historic sites. Oswego’s historic lighthouse is part of the Great Lakes Seaway Trail, which was named a “Top 9 Great American Drive.” It connects other historic lighthouses, villages, wineries and great outdoor activities along the way. Oswego is the home of SUNY Oswego, the Oswego Speedway and one of summer’s most popular festival events, Harborfest. Restaurants, shopping and a stroll along the River Walk in the Historic Maritime District also make Oswego a great place to spend happy days of summer.

Indian Pines Park Public Waterfront, Penn Yan

Penn Yan

A friendly place


enn Yan, the largest town on Y-shaped Keuka Lake, traces its unusual name to its early Pennsylvania and Yankee settlers, many of whom came to Yates County as followers of Jemima Wilkinson, the first American born woman to form a religious society in America, and her group, the “Society of Universal Friends.” Old Order Mennonite families are recent arrivals to the area. Beginning in 1974, many families of the Groffdale Conference Mennonite Church moved to Yates County from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, seeking affordable farmland. The Yates County Old Order Mennonites settlement is the largest horse-and-buggy community in the state of New York. If you are a boating enthusiast, you probably have heard of or ridden on a wooden or fiberglass boat built by the Penn Yan Boat Company. The company, established in 1921 by a German native, Charles A. Hermann, was known for its patented “Tunnel Drive” concept, which provided better boat speed and stability. Today, Penn Yan’s Main Street offers a friendly place to stroll with its eclectic mix of vintage architecture, art gallery, bookstore, shops and restaurants. The community prides itself in looking after each other and in being approachable. Stop in at the Visitors Center on NY Route 14A just south of the village and ask for the “historic Main Street Walking Tour,” which will give you the details on this National Register Historic District.

Part natural wonder and part “industrial archaeology,” the 7-mile Keuka Lake Outlet Trail is built on the track bed of the old Fall Brook Railroad (1884-1974), which, in turn, followed the towpath of the historic Crooked Lake Canal (1833-1877) that once connected Keuka and Seneca lakes by dropping 270 feet over 8 miles through the ravine creat-

ed by the Keuka Outlet Creek. Lining the trail are remnants of the old gristmills, sawmills and distilleries. Remnants of the Crooked Lake Canal, with its 27 locks, run along the north side of the outlet. An elevation drop of nearly 400 feet, beautiful scenery, gorgeous waterfalls and unusual plant life combine to make this an excellent hike for all enthusiasts.

Centerport Aqueduct, Weedsport



eedsport is part of the Central New York Military Tract that was reserved for veterans of the American Revolutionary War, and later became an important part of the Erie Canal, west of Syracuse. Originally named “Weed’s Basin” because the town had a basin (boat turnaround) during the Erie Canal era, the name was later changed to Weedsport. Visit Centreport Aqueduct and Aqueduct Park to get a feel for what it took to build the Erie Canal, the trade route that opened the United States to Westward expansion.

Weedsport Attractions Cross Lake

Between Jordan and Meridian Cross Lake is basically a widening of the Seneca River as the river flows through the lower third of the lake. According to the Department of Environmental Conservation, “Cross Lake is probably best known for producing some large northern pike with fish in the 15- pound range being taken most years. Walleye, tiger musky, northern pike, largemouth and smallmouth bass are the main game fish found in the lake.” A DEC launch on Seneca River provides public access to Cross Lake. It is located on Bonita Bridge Road, 2 miles east of the Village of Weedsport. Hand launch. 10 cars and trailers. Several marinas also offer services. Make sure you have your fishing license in hand and check regulations.

Centreport Aqueduct & Aqueduct Park Route 31 West, Weedsport

The Erie Canal was the engineering marvel of its time and this is a great place to study its engineering ingenuity. Located in the town of Brutus near Weedsport, the historic Centerport Aqueduct was opened in 1855 and originally carried the Erie Canal over a confluence of North and Cold Springs Brooks. It was named “Centre Port” Aqueduct because it was located almost in the exact middle of Section 7 of the Erie Canal. It is a three-span structure that was constructed with stone abutments and wooden beams made from white oak and pine. The trough was made from hemlock. It is one of the original 33 aqueducts built during the construction of the Erie Canal. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Aqueduct is unusual as it incorporates a dam into the stonework structure. The park has several picnic tables and small grills but does not have restrooms or electricity available. All trash must be removed. Hours: dawn to dusk.
