The Greenwich Historical Society invites the town to learn more about Greenwich Point during its third annual “History on Wheels” family bike tour June 22.

Participants will pedal through the Greenwich Point from 1:30 to 3 p.m., learning about the estate’s vivid history. The tour is a part of the 2014 Experience the Sound series of events.

One of the town’s earliest settlements, Greenwich Point was once the estate of magnate J. Kennedy Tod, boasting a private golf course and mansion before being repurposed as a home for WWII veterans and their families.

The event is free of charge, but participants are required to bring their own bike and helmet and will need a park or guest pass to enter Greenwich Point. Bikers will meet prior to the tour in the first parking lot on the right upon entering the park.

Families and children of all ages are welcome but must be able to ride a bike.
