Take Your Family on a Walk (or Ride!) Through 300 Years of Needham's History
Take your Family on a Walk (or Ride!) through 300 Years of Needham’s History With the Needham Historical Society
October 14, 2012 from 10am – 3pm.
Enjoy a self-guided tour through the familiar places that you only thought you knew well! Teach your children the hidden history behind the places you see every day. It’s FREE! Start anywhere and follow as much (or as little) of the route as you wish. Along the route are six Hubs - places of special historic interest. Speakers will be available at each Hub to tell stories and answer your questions. Between the Hubs you will see signs highlighting specific landmarks and their history.
Special activity for children – we will have a Scavenger Hunt along the way. Answer questions about the sites on the Walk and win prizes! Scavenger Hunt lists can be picked up and handed in at the Hubs.
New this year! The Needham Heights Loop! Even if you’ve been on the walk before, we have a whole new route for you to follow. Join us on Sunday, October 14th from 10am – 3pm and learn about the knitting mills, the original public library, and Needham's first telephone.
This event is sponsored Needham Bank and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Needham. For more information, see our website, www.needhamhistory.org/HistoryWalk or find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/NeedhamHistoricalSociety
