Tour Historic Gates Hall
The Williamson-Pultneyville Historical Society (W-PHS) is pleased to invite the public to “Behind the Scenes” Tours of Gates Hall, America’s oldest, continuously active small community theatre, on June 18 & 19. This historic building is just one stop along I Love New York’s Spring 2022 Path Through History.
Learn about the humble beginnings of Gates Hall in 1825 when built as Union Church, Pultneyville’s first sacred place of worship, its heritage and history, and how it later evolved into a community theatre. Hear about notable speakers who lectured about religious and moral issues and about the community theatrical groups that through the years took center stage.
Visitors are welcome to bring a well-filled picnic basket, blanket, or chairs, and enjoy a picnic in the park! All are also welcome to visit exhibits at the Williamson-Pultneyville Historical Society (www.w-phs.org) just steps away from Gates Hall.
While donations are accepted, tours are free and open to the public from 1-4 pm on Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19, 2022. The courtesy of reservations is requested for large groups and tour buses by calling 315-589-9892.
