Brattleboro History Walking Tour

Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary is proud to reboot their walking history tour of Brattleboro, Vermont, offering participants a journey through time while supporting a worthy cause. This unique fundraiser will take place on select Saturdays at 11 am beginning April 13th and continuing this spring on April 27 and May 18 as well as summer and fall dates to be added on a rolling basis.

Led by knowledgeable local Rotarian guides, attendees will spend 90 minutes walking up Brattleboro’s Main Street, delving into its fascinating history from its early beginnings to its present-day charm.

Tours walk from one end of Main Street to the other (approximately 7/10 of a mile) with about 10 stops explaining Brattleboro’s history and culture. The tour will last approximately 1.5 hours and will go from Plaza Park (across from the Co-op) to the Brattleboro Common. Kids are welcome, but the tour is designed for adults.

Whether you’re just visiting or have lived here your whole life, we’re pretty sure you’ll have a fun time, enjoy a nice walk, and learn some interesting new things about Brattleboro. No two tours will be exactly alike since every guide (and some attendees) has their own experiences and memories of Brattleboro.

Tours are limited to 12 participants so registration is required. Payment is on a sliding scale of $20-$40 per person, with all funds going towards the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club’s various scholarships and charitable projects that support the local community.
