After a talk with “Peter Robbins,” we will then do part of “Thoreau’s Path on Brister’s Hill,” where we will see the Toni Morrison Society Bench by the Road and learn about how the natural history of the area played a significant role in why formerly enslaved people in Concord lived in Walden Woods.
While we will not be able to visit with “Ellen Garrison,” as originally planned, we encourage participants to head over to the Robbins House after our walk on Brister’s Hill, as you can learn a lot about Ellen (and the other Robbins House residents) from their exhibitions. “Ellen Garrison” does other appearances at the Robbins House throughout the year, so please join their email list to find out more.
The program on Brister’s Hill will end by 3:00. The Robbins House is open until 4 PM.
This program is part of Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area’s month-long regional celebration, Hidden Treasures 2018.
