October 10 Lantern Tour of Plymouth Center, 7pm
Every year this tour sells out so reserve early! The tour begins in the Congregational Church where “spooky” music of the season is played on the powerful pipe organ. From there, we wend our way through the Plymouth Burying Ground and discover how the symbols and inscriptions on the gravestones provide clues to life in colonial Connecticut. Then we walk around the historic Plymouth Green, surrounded by houses that were on the Underground Railroad and where George Washington stayed during the Revolutionary War.
The cost is $10 for adults, under 18 free. Part of the proceeds benefit the church’s organ restoration fund. All participants receive a full color guide to the village of Plymouth Center and complimentary refreshments at “Antiques at the Green”. Meet at 7pm in front of the Congregational Church, 10 Park St., Plymouth. Call 860-921-6118 or email plymouth.historical@to reserve your place!
