A Ride to Remember:

Bus Tour of Windsor’s Palisado Green and Town Center

April 6, 2014       2 PM – 4 PM

 

A Ride to Remember:  Bus Tour of Windsor’s Palisado Green and Town Center with Windsor Historical Society Director Christine Ermenc.  Why did Palisado Green and Town Center develop the way they did?  Hop on a school bus and find out.  Each participant will receive a packet of historic maps, photographs and images from Windsor Historical Society collections to compare with the features they see as the tour progresses.  Thanks to historian Beverly Garvan’s research, you will learn the history behind Windsor’s historic Palisado and Broad Street Greens and Loomis Chaffee School, and see how rivers, streams, Indian trails, and railroads shaped settlement.  Spaces are limited; the bus sold out with a long waiting list last fall!  Reserve your spot by Friday, April 4.  School bus will meet participants at the Society.  $12 adults, $11 seniors and students, $10 WHS members. 860/688-3813 for more information.
