church 1735 croppedThe kick-off of the Town of Greenwich’s 375th Neighborhood Tours will begin in Old Greenwich on Saturday, May 16 at 10:00 am at the oldest church in Greenwich, The First Congregational Church in Old Greenwich, which was chartered in 1665.

Pat Larrabee, the church’s historian, will present a slide lecture on historic homes and places of interest in Old Greenwich, followed by discussion and two optional tours:  (1) the church’s stained glass windows that show the earliest history of Greenwich and (2) a short walk through the main cemetery next to the church to learn about historical people of note buried there.

Each participant will get a 375th Anniversary Booklet for a self-guided tour of the historic homes and sites featured in the slide show.

Larrabee notes, “There may even be a surprise token gift as you leave the church!” If you would like to join the tour, email info@greenwich375.org.
