West Peterborough Walking Tour

July 28 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for some history on your feet at a special walking tour through West Peterborough. We will look at the evolution of this mill village and discuss the buildings, people, and businesses that shaped ‘the West’ from the early 19th century to the present. On the walk, we will see Peterborough’s only documented Underground Railroad site and learn about the abolitionist movement in the local area. The tour finishes up at the Green Grocer where we will discuss the West Peterborough mills and the devastating fire that destroyed most of the mill complex.

We will meet at the West Peterborough Post Office at 301 Union Street. Please do not park in postal patron parking spaces.

The walking tour is free and open to the public. The tour will take approximately 90 minutes and will be held rain or shine. We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water.

Our 2018 Walking Tours have been generously sponsored by The Petersons, Inc.
