Student Walking Tour of Historic Sites in Newtown

June 1, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Newtown Historic Association will conduct the annual Student Walking Tour on Wednesday, June 1st. The tour begins at 10:00 am and runs until approximately 1:00 pm. The rain date is June 8th.

Over 100 children from Goodnoe Elementary School will take this traditional walking tour through the Borough and Township visiting 8 historic sites.

The tour begins at both the Old Presbyterian Church on Sycamore St. and the Newtown Movie Theatre. The tour then continues in the borough to the Newtown Borough Hall/Police Station, Bird in Hand Tavern, Justice House, Newtown Fire Association, Newtown Library Company and the Half-moon Inn (Court Inn).

The Newtown Historic Association has run this tour for over 45 years and is pleased to be resuming this event after a two-year hiatus due to Covid. This has proved to be a very popular event with the children and enables them to learn about the history of their town.

For more information, please call Dan Griffin 215-205-2058.
