The Col. William Bond House is one of
seven sites included in a "History in 
Your Backyard" package. (ENP FILE
The Niagara History Center, Erie Canal Discovery Center, and Col. William Bond House are teaming up with four other Western New York museums to celebrate "History in Your Backyard."

This collaborative month-long celebration enables guests to visit all seven locations for one low price. Participants will receive a commemorative “passport” that will be stamped at each attraction. The other participating history museums are the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, Museum of disABILITY History and Niagara Aerospace Museum.

The event was created to raise awareness of local museums and attractions, and to allow visitors the opportunity to enjoy a diverse array of history close to home. Visitors to the three Lockport sites will enjoy Niagara County and Erie Canal history.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for children and students, and free for those under the age of 2. A family package is also available for $60. Tickets with passports can be purchased from the History Center or Discovery Center and can be used any time, at all participating sites, throughout the month of August.

All ticket holders will be eligible to win a spectacular prize of a helicopter tour for two over Niagara Falls. The contest drawing will be held at the end of the month.

For more information, call the History Center at 434-7433 or Erie Canal Discovery Center at 439-0431. You can also visit
