Self-guided Walking Tour of Tyler Park
This annual event is designed as a self-guided walking tour of the historic properties and farmhouses scattered throughout the Tyler State Park grounds. This year, the self-guided tour will begin at 10am at the Boathouse Pavilion on Saturday, October 9th, 2021 and again on Sunday, October 10th, 2021.
As part of this ticketed event, representatives from both the Newtown Historic Association and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will be on hand to provide a general overview and answer questions at the beginning of each day.
All registrants will receive an informative Tyler Park historical book. This limited-edition, 100-page book contains rare photographs and detailed descriptions of the many historic properties and farmhouses, including the construction of the Tyler mansion, and how they were acquired by the Tyler family in the early 1900s.
Once registrants receive their tour book and orientation, they will be free to tour the park on their own over the course of the two-day event. A silent auction of several original watercolor paintings of Tyler Park sites by Craig Hackett, a local artist, will be on display.
