Chestnut Street Revisited: June Walking Tour 2 by Jim McAllister
Local historian and raconteur Jim McAllister dishes up a delicious “Chestnut Street Stew” featuring historical facts, architectural observations, and a heavy dose of colorful anecdotes culled from interviews, century – old written accounts of life in the neighborhood, and a variety of other sources.
Each of the two tours makes its own contribution to the flavor of Jim’s lively look back at the good – and not so good – old days on Salem’s most magnificent residential street. Tour 2 focuses on upper Chestnut Street, from Hamilton Street to Flint Street. The rain date is Wednesday, July 5, 7pm.
A ticket purchase provides admission to ONE of the two walking tours Jim is co-hosting with Hamilton Hall this June. Tickets to Tour 1 are sold separately. Join us for one or both of these fun-filled, educational evenings!
