Glens Falls Walking Tour with Bob Joy

9/25/2019  6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Breslaws Truck Downtown 19810200007 sm.jpgBack by popular demand, Architect Bob Joy will repeat his tour of downtown Glens Falls on Wednesday, September 25, from 6 to 7:30 pm.  His tour will feature the buildings around City Park and Glen Street, highlighting such landmarks as the Terra Cotta Building, the former YMCA, and the Civil War monument. Having conducted historical walking tours of the downtown area for more than 30 years, Joy has amassed a trove of stories about the city’s buildings.  His tour will offer a rare opportunity to learn something new.

Bob Joy founded his own architectural practice in Glens Falls in 1977, two weeks after becoming a licensed architect. His early projects focused on the preservation of historic buildings in the downtown area. He joined with a local attorney and contractor to form a development company that purchased nine buildings in the heart of the central business district from the Urban Renewal Agency and rehabilitated them for restaurants, stores, offices, and housing. His work was recognized by the Preservation League of New York State and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, as well as many publications.

The tour will start in front of City Hall.

Cost: $15/person.  Capacity is limited.  For reservations call the museum at (518) 793-2826 or stop by in person at 348 Glen Street, Glens Falls.  Hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 10  am to 4 pm and Sunday, noon to 4 pm.
