Concord Walking Tour

October 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In the 1800s, Concord was the center for American authors and thinkers, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Louisa May Alcott. They gathered together with other Concordians to discuss issues of the day such as slavery, war, the natural world, and many other topics. Led by a Museum educator, explore 1800s Concord and discover the impact of the anti-slavery movement, the Civil War, and the lives and homes of the famous authors who lived here. 1 mile walk, mostly flat sidewalk or pavement, rain or shine.

Victor Curran writes and leads walking tours of Concord’s Revolutionary, Transcendentalist, Abolitionist sites and historic cemeteries for the Concord Visitor Center and the Concord Museum. He is a contributing writer for Discover Concord Magazine, and he teaches history courses for Concord Carlisle Adult & Community Education. He also serves as an interpreter at the Concord Museum and The Old Manse, sharing the stories of these places and their historic contents with adult visitors and student groups. He is a past president of the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library.

Register at The Concord Museum.
