Celebrate Historic Preservation Month in May with a trio of walking tours led by award-winning architectural historian Mary Donohue.
Discover Park Road – one of West Hartford’s most charming and quirky commercial areas. Park Road includes landmarks like the Art Deco-style A. C. Petersen’s Ice Cream Shop, the vintage Quaker Diner, and the duplex neighborhood of Washington Circle. Take a look at some of West Hartford’s signature triple-deckers and learn the fascinating backstory of the Playhouse on Park Building.
Meet at the eastern corner of Park Road and Washington Circle. Tour begins promptly at 10 a.m. and will last approximately 1 hour long. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
If you are interested in more Sidewalk History, we also have tours of Beverly/Arnoldale Roads on May 19 and Elmwood on May 26.
