Born in Chittenango in 1856, Baum and his family roamed the streets of this historic village. A canal landing site along the Erie Canal, the Chittenango Landing was a three-bay dock for canal boats to be repaired. The museum is housed in a building from the Baum era that used to be the apothecary shop in town. The tour doesn’t end along the yellow brick road in Chittenango, we will also visit some Baum related sites in Syracuse as well. The building Baum’s Dry Goods store was in, The place where he met Maud Gage, the famous Rose Lawn estate area, and the Matilda Joslyn Gage house where L. Frank Baum was married.
