United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand made a visit to Lyons, New York on 21 August 2009 to catch her first glimpse of Wayne County. Sen. Gillibrand was welcomed to Lyons in style by community leaders, members of Lyons' municipal agencies, and participating citizens.

The keystone event of the Senator's stop occurred at the historic Hotchkiss Building, where Mrs. Pat Alena of the Lyons Heritage Society led the Senator through a unique tour of Lyons history. The tour featured a combination of narration and live play-acting to tell the story of the Hotchkiss Essential Oil Company from it's true headquarters, the Peppermint Office. The Hotchkiss Peppermint Oil business was at one time the driving industry in Lyons and a major international exporter on the historic Erie Canal.

Please join Wayne County Life on a video tour of the historic Hotchkiss Building--the same tour Senator Kirsten Gillibrand experienced--by playing the movie below. This video footage will put you side-by-side with a United States Senator as she "sees" Wayne County for the first time.



Lyons, NY is the seat of Wayne County--a beautiful place filled with rich history, stunning nature, and great people.

    this is great Mark. The Senator can see the community's history as a reflection of the people there today and how much they care.
