The Greenwich Historical Society invites the community to explore their transformed campus.
Come see first-hand the blend of historic restoration and new construction at the reimagined site that opens to the public on October 6.
The tours of the new buildings and grounds, which are scheduled for October 14 and October 21, will showcase discoveries such as historic wallpaper, an original key for Toby’s Tavern and highlights from the Historical Society’s collection.
John Bridge will lead the 45-minute tours of the new Library & Archives, the Gallery for Special Exhibitions, the Gallery for Permanent Collections, Museum Lobby, Museum Store and Artists’ Café.
Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions about the new facility, its design and construction and its significance to the organization and the community in the preservation of the town’s history.
A Greenwich native, and resident of Riverside, John is a graduate of Greenwich High School and Georgetown University with a BA in English.
After many years working in the telecommunications and travel industries, John educates and entertains children and adults as a docent for the Bush-Holley House.
He is excited to share the historic restoration and discoveries made during the reimagining of the campus with the community.
