Designed as a fundraiser, volunteers from the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club have created a walking history tour of downtown Brattleboro. With the help of the Brattleboro Historical Society and the Brattleboro Words Project, Sunrise Rotary volunteers pooled their collective knowledge to put together a great introduction to Brattleboro, Vermont’s illustrious history.
Tours will be scheduled on a rolling basis for select Saturdays at 11 am in summer and fall 2023. The first tours will take place Saturdays, April 15, May 13, June 3 and June 24.
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 10 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.
