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.

        1. This particular tour is right up front Friday afternoon. You can see it anytime after 1 pm (Eastern).

          The content is still set to “protected” until the weekend begins. I’ve asked our developer to add times to the tabs on the program schedule to help.

          Afternoon content opens at 1pm, Evenings at 5pm, and Mornings at 9 am — those times are Eastern Daylight.

          Live Zoom times are Friday at 9 pm, Saturday at 7 pm, and Sunday at 1 pm. Again, those are Eastern.
