A Walking Tour Through Bradford’s National Historic District
Each building featured includes a photo and a short history. One of the buildings highlighted on the walking tour is 9 Kennedy Street home of Graham’s Florist & Gifts. This building was originally designed to house a bank, but the bank went under before it was completed. Lucky for George Graham, who opened Bradford’s first greenhouse in 1891—he knew it would be the perfect place to sell his fresh-cut flowers and plants. On opening day, Graham gave away 3,000 rosebuds, one for each person who came through his impressive doorway.
Future plans include the addition of two outdoor informational kiosks in downtown Bradford. One kiosk will feature a large map of central downtown Bradford with numbered buildings, historic facts, and nearby attractions. The second kiosk will feature a map and information on local trails. Both kiosks will have special outdoor brochure holders to display both the new Bradford National Historic District Walking Tour and the popular ANF Visitors Bureau Travel Guide and Map which includes a directory listing of our members and the visitor amenities they offer. The new kiosks will provide convenient 24/ 7 access to visitor information.
The brochure and the kiosks are part of the promotional plan of the Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau, the official Destination Marketing Organization for McKean County, to attract tourists, and the economic benefits they bring to our communities and local businesses.
The Bradford Walking Tour brochure is available to visitors free of charge at the Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau's Welcome Center located at 80 E Corydon Street in Bradford.
