Wear to Where #4 …. Stone Tolan Orchard

We brave the cold in this edition of Wear to Where to visit the oldest place in Monroe County – the Landmark Society’s Stone-Tolan House and their heirloom apple orchard…

The orchard is classic example of the type that was often part of small local farms, with the tasty heirloom apples developed in New York in the early nineteenth century to match. [PHOTO: Clarke Condé]
If you are a native Rochesterian, odds are you have been to the Stone-Tolan House external link (but maybe not since your fourth-grade field trip.) To the applephile (the non-Steve Jobs kind), the orchard is classic example of the type that was often part of small local farms, with the tasty heirloom apples developed in New York in the early nineteenth century to match.

The house itself is a teaching museum of local pioneer life complete with tavern and kitchen built to accommodate small gatherings of locals and travelers. Standing on the grounds on chilly days like we have been having, it is hard not to imagine how difficult it was for people in 1792 to make through the winter. It is hard enough here sometimes in 2015.

The days and nights between New Year’s Eve and the nebulous arrival of spring can be a challenge for Rochesterians. This past week has been cold (you can see it in Danitza’s face), some days among the coldest on record. Too many times I have heard that the social life of Rochester effectively shuts down in the winter. True, we are not Montréal external link but a place that has largely chosen to orient towards summer with our festivals and events. Still, we too have these long, cold months. So here is the question: are there ideas we have not tried that could better bring this community together during the winter or is it just too cold to go outside?

One Response to “Wear to Where #4 …. Stone Tolan Orchard”

  1. Cindy Boyer says:

    LOVE these photos, glad we could make the orchard available!

    I agree we should be more open to outdoor winter festivals around here. It works for Montreal and Ottawa, for certain.

    It will be interesting to see the turnout for the free “Hype your Hometown” concert this Sunday downtown with Nico and Vinz.
