NORWALK, Conn. -- “Hidden in Plain Sight – Norwalk in the National Register of Historic Places,” the fifth annual Norwalk Living History Tour conducted by the Norwalk Preservation Trust, will take place Sunday, Oct. 4, at 1 p.m.
The bus tour starts and ends at the Gallaher Mansion in Cranbury Park. The tour spans Norwalk’s development from 1700s farming community to post-Civil War opulence to industrial prosperity in the early 19th century to the post-World War II expansion and forward-thinking community organization.
Along the way, there are stops to enjoy designated sites and homes with the help of costumed re-enactors. Narrated by an architectural historian, this tour aims to shed light on Norwalk's “hidden in plain sight” historic districts and properties.
Because space is limited, tickets must be purchased in advance by visiting the Norwalk Preservation Trust website at www.norwalkpreservation.org or by calling 203-852-9788 for more information. Early bird tickets are $55 until Sunday, Sept. 27.
