About

Take a guided historic walking tour through Corning's Gaffer District and hear the story of the Legend of the Gathers. Learn about the mystery surrounding the legend and Corning history as your guide leads you through your tour.


Led by guides who have been around since the late 1800s, these exclusive historic tours retrace the steps taken by Archibald Raymond, Jack Styles, and Fetch when they first discovered mysterious lights appearing throughout Corning back in 1880, as told in The Legend of the Gathers (a mythical story about Corning’s role in making the original light bulbs for Thomas Edison and a mysterious boy who blew the first bubble). Learn about Corning’s fascinating history before it became known as America’s Crystal City and the events that helped shaped the company and the town’s future.

These special walking tours last about 45 minutes and explore Corning’s historic district.

Meet at the clock tower at Centerway Square near 1 West Market Street Corning, NY for a free guided history and mystery tour of Corning.
