Hikes Through History

Thursday August 4, 2022
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM

Have you ever wandered through the woods and wondered who had been there before you?

In Massachusetts, many parks and trails have been carved out of historic sites. Using maps and historical photos, author and award-winning journalist, Alison O'Leary, will share some favorite day trip destinations with historical significance and interesting features in Eastern Massachusetts, including:

  • A former rubber factory, observatory, and "penny bridge" nearly forgotten in the woods of a reservation north of Boston
  • How the South Shore's Massasoit State Park got so hilly
  • Contributions of the Roosevelt-era Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to our favorite parks
  • Military munitions bunkers buried in the woods
  • Sites of former grand estates (and stories of who lived there) now open to the public
