Picture the architecture, landscape and businesses on a self guided walking tour in honor of Roxbury Township's 280th anniversary. The free walking tour will run from 10am - 1pm.
Commemorative tour booklets provided by the Roxbury Township Historical Society and penned by its president, Marge Cushing, will be given out at the library gazebo at 103 Main Street.
Participants are asked to wear face masks and social distance. The tour will begin and end at Roxbury Public Library’s gazebo, and features stops and brief histories of the trolley stops, businesses, homes, and residents along Main Street.
“Wherever we live in the township’s six ‘villages,’ this walk along Succasunna’s Main Street, Roxbury Township’s 280th Anniversary celebration, is for every one of us,” said Marge Cushing, who researched and wrote the tour booklet, bringing the soul of 18th century Main Street alive. “After the tour, Main Street will no longer be a street where we sit in traffic during our daily commute, but a dirt road transporting us to the 1700’s, as we become familiar with the people who founded our township, see the places they lived and worked in, and learn about our township’s contributions to the early development of our country, food for thought as we wait for the light to change.”
No registration necessary.
