Overview
More
Encompassing more than 600 acres, the Genesee Country Village & Museum is the largest living history museum in New York state. Located in small hamlet of Mumford, New York, about 20 miles (32 km) from Rochester, New York, USA. First opened to the public in 1976, the authentic 19th-century Historic Village features costumed historians breathing life into many of the 68 relocated and restored historic homes, farms, shops and other public buildings. When you visit during the regular season you will find various historic trades and craftspeople as well as historic cooking and agricultural demonstrations. GCV&M is also home to the John L. Wehle Art Gallery, the Genesee Country Nature Center, Silver Baseball Park, a pioneer farm, and several Heirloom Gardens. Numerous special events and classes are also offered throughout the year. Our regular open season runs from Mother's Day weekend through Columbus Day, with special programs in November, December and March.

We enjoyed our quiet day long walk around Genesee Village. All off the volunteers as well as the paid staff were knowledgeable, helpful and inviting. Having been to Williamsburg, we expected that type of quality but the two experiences are distinctly different but equally enjoyable.

I am not sure what link you mean, but if you need a lift while visiting GCV&M and the trolley is not running, you need only ask a staff person and they will call someone to assist you.
