Palmyra’s Proud History
In 1820, Joseph Smith, at the young age of 14, claimed to have a vision of God, which prompted him to create the Mormon religion. In 1830 he organized the Mormon Church, which began with a membership of six. Now the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has more than eleven million members worldwide. Each year thousands of people flock to the area to attend the Hill Cumorah Pageant, a great outdoor theatrical production depicting the beginning of the Mormon religion. Palmyra’s diverse religious history can been seen in the center of town where four churches stand on four corners of Main Street. Winston Churchill’s maternal grandfather, Leonard Jerome, worked as an apprentice in a village store in Palmyra in the 1830’s. Then, after completing his education at Princeton, he became a partner in his uncle’s law practice here. William Phelps was a vital citizen who served needs of locals and travelers with his general store, tavern, boarding house and bakery, all housed in one building, erected in 1826. The William Phelps General Store and Home Museum has remained intact with original merchandise, furnishings and artifacts.

Palmyra’s history is alive and well today, over 200 years later. Once known as the “Queen of Canal Towns,” Palmyra was an important center of trade along the Erie Canal, despite its start as a frontier village. Today Palmyra is an historical and recreational oasis in a countryside community that has preserved and retains much of its original architecture. When strolling through Palmyra you can experience the feel of the 1800s, Victorian-era grandeur, and the ongoing prominence of well-known citizens who lived here.

In 1856, John M. Jones changed the face of the printing industry when he opened a ompany that for 63 years produced and exported printing presses and cutters. The Print Shop Museum houses some of the finest printing equipment ever made. This Alling Coverlet Museum on William Street houses the largest collection of handwoven coverlets in the United States. The Palmyra Historical Museum is a former hotel and tavern that includes 23 rooms displaying over 200 years of Palmyra’s history and its influence on American life and culture. Visitors to this town of living history can walk the Erie Canal Heritage Trail, explore the Market Street Historic District, and even hunt for ghosts. The William Phelps General Store and Palmyra Historical Museum come alive at night during the Ghost Tours that can be experienced here. Palmyra hosts celebrations and events that depict its quintessential rustic charm that are sure to delight. When visiting stay one of the homey bed and breakfasts in the area, or nearby cottages, camping, or inns. [Information courtesy of,]

Grand Marshall Alicia Lynch, Palmyra Village Clerk Treasurer
Who is Alicia Lynch? (This is hard talking about yourself!) Well first and foremost I’m a life-long Village resident and wife of Tom Lynch for 32 years. Mother to Wendi, Ashley and Patrick, who are all married and happily providing me with three grandchildren so far, another one due in December, which will even the count to two girls and two boys. What do you do? • I have been the Village Clerk since April 1996, as well as the Village Treasurer since December 2003. • I have been on the Palmyra Community Library Board of Directors for four years. • I am on a fundraising committee that will be putting on a Mystery Theater Dinner for the library on October 29th. It will include a silent auction with some fantastic items. • I am a member of the Village of Palmyra’s Loan Committee. • I am an Elder of the Western Presbyterian Church. • For the past eight years I have been involved in the Angel Tree project, which provides Christmas gifts to those in need. Along with the Clothing Cupboard, these are two of my most rewarding pastimes. • I became the unofficial Chair of the Clothing Cupboard which is an idea I had three years ago to provide clothing to those in need. A partnership was formed between the Western Presbyterian Church, Zion Episcopal, Palmyra Reformed Church, United Methodist and St. Annes’ Catholic Churches. It operates on the same premise as the Food Cupboard but re-distributes good used clothing to needy. • Last and foremost, I have been a member of Canaltown Days Committee for about 25 years. With my husband, we chaired the Flea Market for about 20 years and I believe I’ve been the treasurer for about 10 years. What inspires you and what do you love about Palmyra? I love what a fantastic community Palmyra is, and I see it demonstrated every day. Being part of the Canaltown Days committee, you realize how strong our sense of community is here. It is the largest fund raising event for many, many organizations and so many volunteers take part and support it, not to mention our fearless leader, Tom Klemann. If you’re thinking about getting involved in anything, you should start here—what fun. The Clothing Cupboard, the Angel Tree project are both fine examples of the generosity of our community. It truly is a great place to live and raise a family. Why are you excited about being the Grand Marshall? Are you kidding me? Do you know why I got involved with the Canaltown Days to begin with? So I could get one of the best seats for the best parade in upstate New York! What a kick to be the Grand Marshall, my mom would be so proud! This is as good as getting Lions Club Woman of the Year last November! I know it sounds like bragging but it is still something that I’m proud of. Why were you chosen to be Grand Marshall this year? Not a clue but I promise I didn’t pay any bribes, and nobody loves the parade more than I do! (Guess it wasn’t so hard talking about myself after all.) To reach Alicia, call or stop by the Village Hall at 144 East Main Street, (315) 597-4849,

We are honored to have Antoinette Mgaletta McClure as our judge this year. Learn more about the McClures at We will be continuing the judging categories established in the past which include oil/acrylic painting, drawing, photography, youth and Palmyra sections, but we will also be including “altered,” or experimental photography, mixed media, sculpture/wood, and fiber arts/ceramics/jewelry sections as well.

Ghost hunts...
For 185 years the Wm. Phelps General Store and Home has remained in its original location, and at night, its history comes to life. For the past four, years Historic Palmyra has been offering ghost hunts, where the happenings of the past, people, and their experiences can been seen, heard or felt by those who dare to explore. Under a watchful eye, allowing for an enjoyable and pleasant experience, your ghost hunt host will walk with you as you watch for ghostly faces peering through windows or listen for hushed voices saying “hello.” Whether you are a novice or a seasoned hunter, for those who enjoy the unknown, these hunts are especially exciting. Unknown noises, voices, smells and shadows, real and by chance, these unexplainable happenings occur on their own and without warning. Only you can decide what you believe! Historic Palmyra offers ghost hunts most weekends, and occasionally during the week. Hunts last 6 hours. $30 per person, by reservation only. Shorter hunts are available.

Canaltown Days is happy to welcome back Chet Walker as our Grand Parade Emcee, Saturday, September 18 at 4:00 pm. Chet is the morning co-host of 1180 WHAM Morning News. Every day, he wakes up more Western New Yorkers than all the local Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts combined! From Buffalo to Syracuse, Lake Ontario to the Pennsylvania border, every weekday morning, Chet and his radio partner, Beth Adams, serve up news and entertainment with a great big dose of fun. Together they have been the most listened-to morning radio program for 15 years straight. Find Chet Walker and Beth Adams every weekday morning from 5:00 to 9:00 am on 1180 WHAM Morning News.

Take a narrated boat tour on a 1953 Mississippi River boat, the Rose Lummis. Tours leave the Port of Palmyra at 11:00 am, 12:30 pm, 2:00 pm, and 3:30 pm. $13 per person, $9 for children ages 2-12. Tickets available at the Canaltown Days Information Booth and at the boat. Lunch and snacks included. Return transportation provided.

Kevin Wright of K&D Disposal will once again be donating his time and equipment to collect the huge amounts of garbage generated by Canaltown Days. This is not new for Kevin, as he has graciously done it for many years. Festival organizers said they are grateful, as the service saves the festival a considerable amount of money.
