Northbridge Trolley Tours
The Northbridge Historical Commission in partnership with the Northbridge Historical Society and with funding provided by a grant from the Northbridge Cultural Council hosts its popular Trolley Tours with three times offered at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Space is limited.
The tours begin at the 1770 Fletcher House, 1 Main Street., former home of James Fletcher and now the home of the Northbridge Historical Society. Northbridge historian and teacher Ken Warchol will serve as guide for this two-hour tour of Northbridge Center and the Historic District of Whitinsville. The tour will take participants back to 1772, when Northbridge received its town charter. Information will be provided about the vital role Northbridge played in the Industrial Revolution with establishment of the Whitin Machine Works as the most prominent textile machine shop in the world by the end of the 1920s.
There is no charge for the tour. Registrations are required. Maps of the historical district are available for $5, and donations are accepted.
To register and for more information, contact Ken Warchol at 508-680-3440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave complete contact info, including full name, contact number and email and preferred time, and the number of seats requested.
