Virtual Walking Tour: Main Street, Manchester Center
Tuesday, October 19 from 5:30 – 7:00pm via Zoom
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is excited to partner with the Manchester Historical Society to present this virtual walking tour of Main Street in Manchester. Along the west branch of the Battenkill River stretches Main Street in Manchester Center, a picturesque New England downtown with parks, restaurants, and our famous bookstore. In the Factory Point era, it was an industrial center, producing woolen blankets for Union soldiers and leather goods from the tannery, with teamsters hauling blocks of marble from the quarries on Mt. Aeolus… and a vampire tale! Join Bill Badger and MHS curator Shawn Harrington for a look back at the transformation along Main Street from the eighteenth century through today. Registration is $18 per person in advance. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.
