Discover historic Newark on Mayor-led tour
Submitted By the Washington Township Museum of Local History
On Saturday, July 15th, Newark Mayor Alan Nagy will host a historical walking tour of old town Newark, sponsored by the Washington Township Museum of Local History. The tour will cover about a square mile and visit many sites that were part of the founding of the City.
The tour will begin at 11 a.m. at Watkins Hall on the corner of Thornton and Ash and then go to the Snow Home and Museum. From there the group will move on to Wells Avenue where the Pacific Land and Investment Co. Building, later the Chamber of Commerce (1910), still stands. The tour will then cross the tracks to where two hotels once stood, and then up to Sycamore, over to Thornton and back down to Watkins Hall. There will be about 22 stops.
Suggested donation for the tour is $5 per person. A tour booklet with facts and photographs is included.
