132 Market Street

Palmyra, NY 14522





Historic Palmyra is a bustling step back into history. The street is lined with four businesses from and old bar/restaurant and hotel to the local general store with the Alling Coverlet Museum just across the way. It is a great place to spend the day. Pack a picnic and take a break in between Museums at the near by Canal Park. Tickets are sold for separate buildings or as a trail pass which grants entry into all five buildings. The Alling Coverlet Museum is always free. Buildings are old and accessibility is sometimes dictated by this. The Depot, built in the 1830's is the oldest of these buildings. Staff work hard to make as much of the museum accessible to all people as possible.
