"Granger Homestead" Canandaigua Things to Do Tip by davecallahan
Canandaigua Things to Do: 16 reviews and 45 photos
The Granger Homestead is a place which is steeped in presenting oldtime activities to a new public. They have special events like Christmas Tree Judging, Evening of Lights, sleigh rides in winter and buggy rides in summer, Tea Parties, Olde Time Weddings. They have exhibits of arts and crafts that were indigenous to the area but are now all but gone. There are programs especially aimed at school children and you can rent the place for private parties.
The place is maintained by donations from community members and members of historical societies and by the money they make off of their events and programs. They also have a carriage museum which I thought was a bit "lame" but which might attract a true history buff.
There is a gift shop but it is fairly small. Most of the events have their own items for sale or auction.
Be sure to bring a camera. Each time that we have gone to one of their events, we have easily shot a full roll of one of those single-use cameras.
