Jul 25, 2014 — Food, music, horse drawn wagon rides and historic house tours are all part of Parishville's bicentennial celebration this weekend.
You can tour a replica of the cabin of the first white settler, Luke Brown, on Saturday morning 9-11 am. The 1860s Grange Hall on Parishville's Main Street, owned by artist Helen Condon, will be open for tours on Saturday afternoon 2-4pm.
Todd Moe stopped by Condon's home this week for a visit. Known for her braided wool rugs, the Grange is her home and work studio. It's also just a stone's throw from one of her favorite spots in town, the historic foot bridge across "The Gorge" on the West Branch of the St. Regis River.
