Front Row Seat to History (Horizons)

November 15, 2017 (Canandaigua, NY) ─    All aboard! Residents from Horizons, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Canandaigua, recently took a scenic trip on an interurban trolley during a visit to the New York State Museum of Transportation.

Horizons residents  Pearl Osterman, Pat LaBell, Shirley Carr and Alice McArdle, and Resident Care Director Kimberlee Patterson-Brown enjoy a ride on a trolley at the New York State Transportation Museum in Rush.

The electric trolley was decorated with a variety of vintage ads and everyone had the opportunity to sound the trolley’s whistle!

In addition, the tour included historic vehicles and photographs, model railroad displays, a research library and a gift shop. Residents were especially enthralled by the model railroad, and spent quite a bit of time pointing out all the fine details and reminiscing about model trains of their youth.

“The tour guides and volunteers were friendly and informative,” said Activities Director Sarah Mason. “People really seemed to enjoy the huge mini-train display. They even turned off the overhead lights so we could see all the tiny lights that were part of the display.”
