As part of our “Discover Greenwich” Program, celebrating the Greenwich Historical Society’s 90th anniversary, we welcome you to join us on this first in a series of guided walking tours that take a step back in time and illuminate the stories of our community that have created the vibrant town we know today. These tours enrich our knowledge and understanding of the various neighborhoods of Greenwich to promote a sense of place and belonging, spark dialogue, and inspire meaningful connections across our diverse community.
Explore the Historic Greenwich Municipal Center with a guided walking tour down Greenwich Avenue. The tour will take approximately one-and-a-half leisurely hours by crossing Greenwich Avenue in a straight line from Field Point Road on the west to Mason Street. The distance covered is approximately one quarter mile and will cover eight buildings and monuments erected in the span of 46 years, from 1892-1938, transforming pastureland directly into a distinct municipal center without an intermediate residential or commercial phase of development.
Please note, for accessibility purposes, that this tour includes areas with steps.
