Greenwich Historical Society offers History on Wheels

With Greenwich Cove as the backdrop, the Greenwich Historical Society will once again participate in Experience the Sound on Sunday, June 21, from 1:30-2:15, at Greenwich Point, Tod’s Driftway, Old Greenwich.

The event is a yearly celebration at Greenwich Point that showcases local organizations and educational institutions that care for and promote coastal marine life, nature, outdoor recreational pursuits, town history and the environment. This year’s History on Wheels program will be linked to the celebration of Greenwich’s 375th birthday and will focus on key events in the history of the Point, including initiatives by the Greenwich Point Conservancy to restore public buildings and native habitats.

Participants will meet at the first parking lot on the right after entering the park. The group will then cycle around the Point, stopping at various locations to hear stories, take a closer look at some of the ruins and see vintage photos from the Historical Society’s collection. There also will be an activity with prizes for children.

Participants must bring their own bikes and helmets, and a water bottle is highly recommended.

The program is free, and no park pass is required.

The Town of Greenwich purchased the property from Presbyterian Hospital of New York in 1945 for $550,000. The 148-acre peninsula estate (including golf course) was built by Tod, and several of its outbuildings still stand.
