Historic Adams’ house tour during Fall Festival

FORESTVILLE — The Forestville Fall Festival Committee is has announced that Merv and Nancy Adams Frey will be opening their historic home on Oct. 7 during the Forestville Fall Festival.

The Adams House was built in 1871 and enjoyed by Judge and Lee Towne Adams for many years. It was restored by Merv and Nancy Adams Frey in 2014.

Rooms to tour include: the renovated Portuguese-tiled kitchen, music room, library, oval dining room, reception hall, three-story spiral staircase, crown molding and central medallions, second floor bedrooms, study and stage, third-floor playroom and bedrooms.

The tour is in celebration of the 100th year of women’s suffrage in New York state. Forestville students will bring the historic 1917 vote — where women in New York state were able to vote for the first time — to life using items from the collections such as period hats, books, clothing, art work and music.

The home will be open for tours on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at 21 Pearl St., Forestville. Donations for tickets are a suggested $10 to benefit the scholarship fund in memory of Lee Towne and Muriel Stang Adams.
