One of the activities of the Scriba Bicentennial Celebration is a self-driving tour of the historic homes, structures and sites of interest in the township.
There are many such places in Scriba, but a sampling of nearly 50 of them are included in a brochure, which will be available at the Scriba Municipal Building, the Scriba Justice Center, or the Scriba Fire Station during the celebration June 16 and 17.
The text is by Dr. Helen M. Breitbeck and includes a brief description and location of each site. Brochures will be available after the event as well.
Saturday, June 16 from 1 to 4:30 p.m., there will be an open house at eight of the sites. Of these. two are outdoor structures: the 1828 Lock on the Oswego River and the Lighthouse Sculpture at Dynegy.
The other six are the Page Chapel at Riverside Cemetery, the Tabernacle at the Ontario Bible Conference, the Noel House on Maiden Lane, the Noel house on the Myers Road, and the Landrigan-Lose house on Route 104.
The Bicentennial Celebration will be held on June 15, 16, and 17. It will feature a number of events.
Music will be provided by the Nick Sterio Band, the New Horizons Band, and the Don Goodness jazz ensemble as well as country music by the Loren Teachout group, and gospel music on early Sunday afternoon.
