10:00am [10:00am] Guides Training
If you are interested in guiding at the Bement-Billings Farmstead there will be an orientation conducted at the Farmstead on Saturday, June 22 at 10 AM. The Farmstead is open to the public for guided tours on weekends from 12 to 4 starting the first weekend in July (this year July 6 & 7) through the first weekend in October for Apple Festival. Although we encourage guides to dress in period attire this is not necessary requirement. Those who are interested need to be part of the Cooking/Guides Guild which is one of the Guilds sponsored by the Newark Valley Historical Society. Learning to cook over the open hearth is also encouraged, but is also not a requirement. The Guides Guild is open to both males and females. Orientation will be conducted by Ed Nizalowski, Director of the Farmstead, and other members of the Guild. Those people who might interested in being part of school tours should also attend. Please RSVP to Ed (607-642-8075). The Bement-Billings Farmstead is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been open to the public since 1980. The Farmstead home is a genuine time machine that dates back to the early 1800's with an addition from the 1840's. The Society manages 95 acres which includes a 1 ½ mile nature trail which can be accessed via the Sycamore Bridge. Our guides come from a wide geographic area including Binghamton, Trumansburg and one who recently moved to the Rochester area. Please consider becoming part of a group that interprets domestic and agricultural life from the early days of the Southern Tier.
