Welcome to the Princeton Association of New England - Historical Tour of Concord, Massachusetts

 

Historical Tour of Concord, Massachusetts

Led by long-time resident alum, Douglas Bailey *72, P'10

 Sunday, November 1 and Sunday, November 15.

 

In the spirit of the “precepts” that many regions enjoy through the grassroots offerings of their local alums, long-time Concord resident, Douglas Bailey *72, P’10, is offering a sight-seeing tour of that Revolutionary and Transcendental hotspot, Concord, Massachusetts, where he has lived and shown guests around for many years!

 

Meet at the train station around 9:00 am.  Visit the North Bridge and the Daniel Chester French sculpture of the Minuteman. Next visit the Alcott House or the Minuteman Visitor’s Center, followed by lunch at the Colonial Inn.  Have a little exercise after lunch visiting memorials at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, Alcott, Robin Moore, and James Crockett of the Victory Garden).  Then on to the Concord Museum, Walden Pond and the location of Thoreau’s Cabin. By then, we’ll have walked enough to visit the ice cream shop next to the train station.

 

Douglas can drive the first four participants—and more can join the caravan if there are additional participants with cars.  Douglas will try to get library passes to limit the cost of museum admissions. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather.
