On Saturday, April 18th, the Barkhamsted Historical Society will conduct a hike at Peoples’ Forest, East River Rd, Barkhamsted. The “Walk Through Time “ hike will begin at 10:00 am at Squire’s Tavern, 100 East River Rd. The hike will be a circular hike of approximately 1 mile with about a dozen stops along the way at locations to “see” what it would have looked like in the past. The Stone Museum and Squire’s Tavern as well as areas on the banks of the Farmington River will be some of the stops. The hike takes about 1 ½ hours and is relatively easy although it covers some uneven ground so wear suitable shoes.Come experience this area as it was long, long ago.
