October 7, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Chris Paulin of MCC (pictured in center with raincoat in this 2014 photo) will describe the silk empire in Manchester at the 41st annual free walking tour of the Cheney Landmark Historic District. Donations accepted, but not mandatory. Meet in front of 146 Hartford Road, Manchester, the former Cheney Office Building, now Fuss & O’Neill. Find out about the huge brick buildings that remain from the days of the world-famous silk mills. Who worked there? Who owned the mills? Where did workers and owners live? We’ll see Cheney Hall, and the former silk mills, South Manchester Railroad, machine shop, neighborhoods of worker housing. About two hours with a distance of about one mile. No rain date, so bring umbrellas if weather is iffy. Extreme weather cancels. More events: http://www.manchesterhistory.org/MHS3_Events.html
