Ride to Remember: Bus Tour of Hayden Station, Rainbow and Poquonock

November 8, 2015       1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

.

Join us on Sunday, November 8, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. for a special “Ride to Remember” with Windsor historian Beverly Garvan. The tour will be focused on the Windsor villages of Hayden Station, Rainbow, and Poquonock, the last in a series of popular bus tours that have covered Windsor Town Center and Wilson. Where did Hayden Station, Rainbow, and Poquonock get their names? Who were the people who lived in these areas and what were the significant landmarks and businesses? And just what was “Camp Windsor?” 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. Evocative stories about the area from the Windsor Storytellers books will be shared. Spaces are limited; these bus tours sell out fast. Reserve your spot by Friday, November 6 by calling 860-688-3813 or contacting info@windsorhistoricalsociety.org . School bus will meet participants at the Society. Cost for the tour is $10 adults, $9 seniors and students, $8 WHS members.
