Join your neighbors on October 21st to learn about these structures among others and the people who resided in them during the Walking History Tour.

Meet at 9:30 in the Stone House in Forest Hill Park and view some very old photographs of the park and neighborhood. The walking tour starts at 10:00 and continues until noon. The cost (tax deductible) is $15 per person. There is no charge to members of Friends of Forest Hill Park.

Come and enjoy fresh air, a leisurely walk, and colorful narrative. A couple of the houses below.

The imposing iron gate and fence in front of this house came from a famous old Richmond landmark.

Much of the wood interior, including a curved staircase, was brought to this house from a mansion that stood on Porter Street circa 1850 in Manchester.
