Home of Mike & Lynn Fehr 621 South Street

A wandering path bids welcome to visitors as the eye is swept up from the stacked stone entry steps to the impressive balconies of this Colonial Revival home. And the home itself has wandered. First built in 1869 at the corner of First and Fulton, then moved north to First and Franklin streets in 1900, this stately home settled in to its current corner in 1920.

The McHugh Family Home 413 South River Lane

Built in 1931, this picturesque French country cottage is reminiscent of times gone by. Little Traveler founder, Kate Raftery, purchased the land as part of her River Lane Beautification Project, and soon after, this Batavia quarry stone house became the home of Robin’s Bookshop. Over the years carefully blended additions have updated the house while maintaining its historic quality.
