Greater Oneonta Historical Society

Hill City Tours

Welcome to Oneonta, City of the Hills, nestled in the foothills of the Catskills along the banks of the Susquehanna River, its beauty ever-enriching with the changing of the seasons. Come with us and explore the historic commercial center of the city. Learn of its varied small-town past and its many contributions, even into the Age of Technology.  Discover its intimate association with baseball, the Great American Pastime.

This year, the Greater Oneonta Historical Society introduces walking tours by prior arrangement of Oneonta’s historic Main Street. 

These “Hill City Tours” will be offered by GOHS members Bob Brzozowski and Don Cook. Bob is the former executive director of GOHS, and the author of the Main Street and Walnut Street historic walking tour brochures. Don is a licensed New York City tour guide, having been employed for many years by Gray Line, recently retired to Oneonta.

To plan a walking tour for up to twenty persons, contact Bob at or Don at

Cost for one to four persons is $60; each additional person is $20. Children under 10 are free. A typical tour lasts one to one and one half hours.
