This event will be enjoyed by families, neighbors and anyone with an interest in Providence history. The tour will meet on North Main Street at the cemetery entrance gate opposite the Providence Armory at 7 p.m. (This gate opens to marble steps into the cemetary. It  is on the southbound side of North Main Street, just after the last office buildings, one long block after Walgreens as you head toward downtown.)

Robert O. Jones will lead a short walking tour from the gate. A local naturalist will provide an ecological context. At 8PM, we will return to the steps for snacks and ghost stories from Mark Binder.

Pre-registration is requested but not required. To register or to get more information, contact Greg Gerritt at 331-0529 or by email at gerrit@mindspring.com.

  2. I went and this was a very fun night. Learned a bunch of neighborhood history as well as national history. Peppered in was some arts and ecology; very cool stuff. Thanks!

    For future neighborhood tours it would be interesting to learn about:

    the development of the roads and highways and how they changed the neighborhood

    some of the historical buildings that are spread throughout

    history of the Armory
