Discover the Living History All Around Lewiston, New York

History isn’t just found in textbooks; it exists all around us. Step out of the classroom and into the streets with our living history programs for children and adults. Lewiston, New York, is both an excellent town for walking and rich with history, making it ideal for fun and educational walking tours. The Lewiston Council on the Arts helps maintain two different programs: the Marble Orchard Ghost Walks and the Marble Orchard Historic Walking Tours.

Take Our Ghost Tours for Spooky Fun and Learning

Go on a walk down the dark side of Lewiston to explore the grim and ghastly deeds of residents long past. During the Marble Orchard Ghost Walks, you hear classic local ghost stories, myths, and true tales of tragedy, crime, murder, and mystery. These ghost tours are available each Saturday evening of September and October, rain or shine. For more information in the Marble Orchard Ghost Walks, reach out to our helpful staff.

Explore the Distant Past on Our Historic Walking Tours

Venture into the rich background of Lewiston and western New York by taking part in the Marble Orchard Historic Walking Tours. Costumed guides combine historical facts with local legends to bring the past to life. In addition, the guides tailor the narration to fit the age and interests of each group, so no one tour is ever the same as another. These tours last approximately 90 minutes and are available by appointment year-round. Get more details on the tours by speaking with our staff.
