A Walk on Walnut

Join the Rochester-Avon Historical Society for a summer walking tour on Wednesday, July 10 at 6:30 p.m. Rochester’s Walnut Boulevard once played host to seven churches within a two-block stretch. Walk with us as we tell the incredible stories of these buildings and the residents that called Walnut home. Hear of the Methodist Reverend that recruited unemployed workers from the Upper Peninsula’s Copper Country to staff Avon’s mills, the Congregational Pastor once known as "the Boy Bugler of Sherman’s Army" during the Civil War, the pioneer Town Supervisor who battled a knife-wielding Native American in the streets of Pontiac, the Western Knitting Mills executive who dabbled in spiritualism, and so much more! This walking tour will cover roughly two blocks of Avon’s old “Church District'' and will be led by RAHS historical guide Chris Brown. We'll meet at the northwest corner of Second and Walnut streets (203 Walnut).

This event is free for RAHS members. Nonmembers are asked to consider a $5 suggested donation at the start of the tour. Registration is required. Register by tapping on Get Tickets Now, by sending an email to rahsupdates@gmail.com , or call 248-266-5440 and leave a message.
