VISIT PALMYRA, NEW YORK

Palmyra is one of the oldest towns in the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York State. It was founded in 1789 and named for the ancient Syrian market city of Palmyra. In its early days, Palmyra was very much a frontier town, but later came to prominence after the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825. Palmyra became known as "Queen of Canaltowns," and was an important center of trade along the busy waterway.

Today, Palmyra is a lively place, complete with several fascinating museums, outdoor recreational opportunities, and a host of community and cultural events throughout the year.  The Village retains much of the architecture of its Victorian heyday.  Even the changing autumn leaves bring  visitors from far and wide.  Find our more at:PalmyraNY.com
