Historical Walking Tour

Description: The Manchester Historical Society will lead a walking tour in the Cheney historic district on New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, starting at 1:00 p.m. The one-and-a-quarter-hour walk starts at the Cheney Homestead, 106 Hartford Road, and proceeds along streets and lawn to view the exterior of historic mansions, with a visit to the nine acres purchased by the Town of Manchester in 2005 for open space and historic preservation. Historical Society members Tom Ferguson and Susan Barlow will comment on the historic landscape and buildings. There is some steep and uneven ground, so participants should wear sturdy shoes or boots. Park at Fuss & O’Neill, 146 Hartford Road. Extreme weather cancels, but the walk will be held in light rain or snow flurries, so please bring an umbrella. $10 for non-members, $7 for members, and free for children under age 16.
