Free Walking Tour on the Great Lawn

Description:
Walking Tour on the Great Lawn

Hosted by two members of the Cheney Brothers National Historic District Commission, Saturday June 18 at 1:00 p.m. Popular history walk starting at Fuss & O'Neill, 146 Hartford Road (plenty of parking in the lots west and south of the building). Find out more about the Great Lawn and its former residents on this one-and-a-quarter-hour walk, which will proceed along streets and lawn to view historic mansions and the nine-acre property purchased by the Town in 2005 for open space and historic preservation. Historical Society member and former resident of the Horace Bushnell Cheney House, Tom Ferguson, and Town Historian, Susan Barlow, will comment on the historic landscape and buildings. There is some steep and uneven ground, so participants should wear sturdy shoes or boots. Extreme weather cancels, but the walk will be held if light rain. Free.
