MARK TWAIN COUNTRY, N.Y. (August 15, 2017) -- Thanks to a partnership between the summer Trolley into Twain Country Tours and Steele Memorial Library, school age trolley riders will receive a complimentary copy of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from Thursday, August 17 through Labor Day weekend. It is hoped the books will excite children and families to learn more about Elmira’s Twain legacy and the lovable characters he brought to life here.
An Elmira legacy for over 30 years, the trolley tours depart on the hour from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays through September 2. Tours include a stop to go inside the Mark Twain Study at Elmira College, while the last tour of the day offers a different route that also includes a stop at the author’s gravesite at Woodlawn Cemetery. Riders may board from the lobby of the Chemung Valley History Museum located at 415 E. Water St., Elmira. Adults are $8, students ages 5-18 are $4, and children 4 and under are free.
The tours are operated as a joint initiative between Chemung County, the Chemung Valley History Museum, Terp’s Enterprises, and the Chemung County Chamber of Commerce. For reservations or more information, call the History Museum at (607)734-4167.
