Home tour had

plenty of help


The Dunkirk Historical Society just completed a very successful House Tour thanks to the many community members from here and elsewhere who attended. We are very grateful to all who bought tickets and participated in viewing five fantastic homes.

These owners graciously allowed us to visit their homes and hear unique stories. We are very appreciative.

P&G Foods, Dunkirk Public Library, and Big Rick’s One Stop sold many tickets for the tour as did the museum.

The Rev. Zoe Milliman, pastor of St. John’s United Church of Christ, allowed the Historical Society to use their beautiful church for the reception where everyone could come and enjoy delicious desserts, punch and great coffee donated by Gina and Dave Kron of Tim Hortons. Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation did an amazing job with our tickets and posters. It truly does take a city to work together to make things possible.

If that city happens to have a newspaper called the OBSERVER and a great publisher named John D’Agostino then we really “make the news.” Our many articles with pictures, descriptions, and reminders that appeared often surely contributed to much of the success.

Our gratitude goes out to all of our staff, board of trustees, members and volunteers who made this a true team effort. Keep in mind that the museum will be holding another tour in 2020. If you might be interested in having your house on the tour, please call the Dunkirk Historical Museum at 716-366-3797.

Many thanks.
