In 1986, in conjunction with the annual Founders’ Day celebration,the Wellsville Historic Presevation Commission put together a historical tour of Wellsville as it existed in 1863. A bus tour took interested citizens and vistors on a fascinating trip around Wellsville. Members of the Commission pointed out various points of interest and highlights of Wellsville’s history.

A brochure was given to participants showing the different historical locations. Now you can print a copy of the brochure and take your own personal tour. The plot map is from a survey taken on October 28, 1863, when Wellsville was just 7 years old.
