A Woman About Town Walking Tour

  • Meet Near 15 Prospect Terrace Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States

Take a tour of the town from the vantage point of a woman who lived there in the early 20th century. Starting in front of an upper-middle class home at 15 Prospect Terrace, you’ll learn about Montclair’s history, focusing on the late 1800s to mid-1900s, a period of great growth and change, as it would have likely been experienced by the family that lived here. The tour shines a special spotlight on a woman’s experience during that time and typical activities and interests. A tour will also be given inside the First Congregational Church and the Montclair Women’s Club, light refreshments served at the end. The walking tour is led by Montclair History Center Board of Trustee Helen Fallon and Manager of Audience Engagement, Angelica Diggs. Co-sponsored by Bike&Walk Montclair. Suggested donation of $10. Register by calling 973-744-1796 or send a note to mail@montclairhistorical.org. We’ll be walking about a mile, including a viewing of the current Mills Social Services building gardens, ending at the Women's Club of Montclair
