Looking for a fun, interesting activity this summer? Take the self-guided History Explorer Walk in Greensboro Village or Greensboro Bend. Children and adults alike are invited to explore a bit of Greensboro’s history with a fun, self-guided walk through the village sponsored by the Greensboro Historical Society & Greensboro Free Library. Pick up a map with a questionnaire on the back at the Greensboro Free Library, the Greensboro Historical Society, at Smith’s Store or print out at home from one of our websites,
It’s a great walk, with some surprising information and there are even prizes for answering questions. Follow the numbered designations to each historic location where you can read the history and answer the questionnaire, if you wish, to receive a free volume of the history of Greensboro. (Take sheets to the library to receive book.) Find photos of the first town hall or the Caspian Lake House in Greensboro Village, or the workers at the first sawmill in Greensboro Bend. The walk will be posted from July 15 – Labor Day.
Much of the information came from the booklet “An Architectural Walking Tour of Greensboro, VT” prepared by GHS in 2001. Copies of that booklet are available to check out from the GFL or for sale on the GHS website or purchased at the GHS museum on a Saturday morning 10 – 1.–
