The popular Walking Tour of Weston’s Historic District, which has now  entertained and enlightened over 700 participants, will return at 10 a.m.  on Saturday, August 6.  It begins that day with a short background talk in the gazebo on the Weston Green, then follows a path, just over one mile in length, where 25 historic sites are clustered, ending at the Weston Playhouse. It lasts approximately  an hour and a quarter. Along the way one meets many Weston notables, from the earliest settlers  to the five remarkable men who rescued Weston from the doldrums after easier farming, city jobs, mass production and better transportation decimated the population and the economy. Popular anecdotes include How Weston Got its Name, the Phantom  Outhouse, When the Population Dropped to Zero, Surgery by Streetlamp  and the Famous Pump Murder. The tour is conducted by guides from the Weston Historical Society. There is no cost, but donations are appreciated.
