Owego Front Street Tour - A Cell Phone Self Guided Tour of Owego's Historic Homes

Welcome to Owego, a small, but historic village, located on the Susquehanna River in the heart of New York's Southern Tier and the Finger Lakes Region.  Perhaps the greatest evidence of Owego's glory in days of old is the heritage of beautiful homes and buildings that still stand here. These structures serve as a living textbook of the finest architectural achievements of America's golden age.  These buildings not only teach us about the tastes and craftsmanship of days gone by, but also serve as reminders of many historic events and people.  This tour begins on Front Street starting at the Court Street Bridge heading west.
