HIDDEN LANDMARKS, gives us a window into the history of Elmira, Corning, and the Finger Lakes.  We explore the region looking for forgotten pieces of history that link us to our past and show why the Southern Tier is such a fun and interesting place to live.

There are two versions of Hidden Landmarks. In this version, J.D. will cover the high points of the locations. In the longer versions, that show every Friday morning on J.D’s Facebook Live page at 8:30 am, it will show more information including the research that goes into making the shorter segments.
