Walking Tour: The Story of Colonial York

This is a South Coast Senior College Collaboration with the Old York Historical Society

June 5, 2024 at 1 pm. Fee: $5 (3 places available as of June 3rd)

This is the first of several tours with Old York Historical Society. You are receiving 50% off through South Coast Senior College.

From its indigenous people to European settlement and incorporation as one of America’s first cities, York has a long and fascinating history. As the center of government for Colonial Maine, the people of this place first known by its Abenaki name of Agamenticus, experienced much turmoil at the frontier between Colonial New England and French Canada. This walking tour of Old York, at the center of York Village, will explore our earliest roots as well as the farming and maritime trades that developed.

If you enjoy colonial history and are looking for a surprisingly revealing tour about one of this nation’s oldest communities, reserve your spot today. The tour is suitable for history buffs of all ages, and in particular families.

The tour lasts approximately an hour, and covers a three-block area along York Street. The terrain is uneven, and comfortable shoes are recommended.

Tours begin promptly at the Lindsay Road entrance to the Museum Center, so please arrive no later than 5 minutes prior to check in. Because tour sizes are limited, if you do not check in by the start time of the tour, your ticket may be released to someone on the waiting list. 

Use the blue button to register:

In case of inclement weather, the tour is cancelled and tickets will be refunded, or credited towards another scheduled tour.

Note: The next walking tour is on WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 at 1pm.
