About This Registration
The buildings we live among are snapshots of the time in which they were built. Their specialized form and detail can tell us a lot about the ideas and values our historic communities held and why a specific style was used. In this walking tour, we'll cover almost 400 years of history contained in the handful of styles that can be found in almost any New England city; all of them revealing to us an idealized way of living that we, historically, strove to live up to.
All you'll need to bring is a pair of comfortable walking shoes, water, and weather-appropriate clothing (as this event takes place rain or shine).
Meeting place: in front of the Witch House (310 1/2 Essex Street)
