Scandals, Crimes, and Disasters Walking Tours
October 27, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
All tour participants will receive a free appetizer from Estia Greek Restaurant on Main Street, good for the night of the event.
Are there ever any “things that are best forgotten?” Perhaps, but we believe these particular scandals, crimes, and disasters can remind us that history was real life before it was written down.
In this brand-new walking tour about the other side of local history. From petty feuds and social spats to serious crimes of robbery and murder, we cover eleven events that really happened, but are rarely mentioned in published histories of our town. For instance, we will tell you about a colonial minister who desperately wanted a divorce, a town official who may have been a counterfeiter, and an unsolved murder that may have been committed by Prohibition-era gangsters.
$20 per person. Members Free.
