“You sure brought those old ghosts back to life.” That was a comment made by a participant in one of last year’s Walking Tours of Weston, Vt. Meet the town’s pioneers, early industrialists who built the first mills and factories; a remarkable group of people who revitalized Weston; and other characters on the Walking Tour of Weston’s Historic District, Saturday, May 31, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Weston Green on Route 100 in the center of town. The walk is just less than a mile in length, and will last about an hour and a quarter. In 1985, the Department of the Interior declared almost all of the Village of Weston to be an Historic District, and listed it as such on the National Register of Historic Places. The Walking Tour, conducted by guides from the Weston Historical Society, visits 25 venues. There is no cost to participate. It is hoped that those who enjoy the walk will leave a donation at the Farrar-Mansur House Museum or Old Mill Museum at its conclusion.
