This fun program, called Podcast2thePast, offers visitors an opportunity to hear brief (2-3 minute) historical podcasts, exploring such treasures as:

Another interesting feature of this program is that the podcasts offer a way to highlight packages such as “Wine and Women Rock,” which bring together Widmer’s Wine Cellars, Sonnenberg Gardens, the Ontario County Courthouse and Bully Hill Vineyards for a unique offering and a bit of history as well.

The website also contains a Calendar of Events and a  photo gallery with some great historical photos.

For local folks looking for something to do, this is a great way to “sample” some of the region’s treasures in advance of a visit.

Podcast2thePast was underwritten in part with an Explore New York grant from the NYS Division of Tourism.
