LE ROY, N.Y. -- You may have heard that Le Roy is birthplace to a famous dessert, but there's much more to the small Genesee County town.
JELL-O was created in Le Roy in 1897, and the original inventor sold the rights for just $450. It was eventually moved out of Le Roy about 50 years ago, but the history remains.
2 On Your Side's Michael Wooten toured the JELL-O Gallery with Curator Lynne Belluscio. You can see the full story in the video player.
In the basement of the JELL-O Gallery, you'll find a transportation museum. And there's history in the making at the gallery. It's now the starting point of a barn quilt tour.
It started out as an idea to celebrate the town for its bicentennial last year. Organizers, including Lynne, hoped to have a couple dozen barns with the wooden quilts; they had 70. Now there are well over 100.
You can pick up a free self-tour brochure at the JELL-O Gallery and find more information on the group's website.
It's open 7 days a week from April through December. Hours at 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday - Saturday and then 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. on Sundays.
Admission is only $4.50 for adults and $1.50 for children 6-11.
You can find out much more information on the gallery's website.
