Walking Tour and Community Conversation

May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

ChenHallDrawing1914.JPGPreservation Connecticut and Jane’s Walk, Inc., encourage cities and towns to host neighborhood walking tours where residents can meet and talk to each other about their experiences living in Manchester, or in their hometown. The free, citizen-led tours are inspired by Jane Jacobs (1916-2006), writer, urbanist, and activist who championed a community-based approach to city-building.

The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbors. Meet at the office steps, Fuss & O’Neill, 146 Hartford Road, Manchester. About one hour; moderately paced half mile. Rain or shine. Led by Susan Barlow, Town Historian, and Jessee Muñiz-Poland, elected member of the Town Board of Directors.
