Our self-guided history explorer walks--popular in 2020 and expanded in 2021--continue this year with added interpretive signs and a new way to learn about the sites: We invite this summer’s explorers to complete the architectural scavenger hunt outlined in the new brochure that accompanies the walks. The hunt is complete when all the unique architectural elements shown in the brochure are spotted on one of the buildings featured on the walk. Those whose interest has been piqued can learn much more in the GHS publication, Architectural Walking Guide to Greensboro Village, which contains interesting information about many of the buildings in the tour and is for sale at the GHS bookshop.

As in prior years, we will collaborate with the Greensboro Free Library to help spread the word about the walks and encourage children to participate. The GFL’s summer reading theme is "water," so we will be adding several new water-themed signs to the walks, including one at the Miller’s Thumb describing the old water-powered mill and one at Caspian Lake beach to explain the history of the beach. 

In Greensboro Bend, we’re happy to announce that intrepid explorers have pinpointed the original site of the coal sheds. It is a bit off the beaten path, but a new sign will point people in the right direction down the Rail Trail. 

By mid-June, the signs will be posted in both villages, and the brochures will be available at the GFL, Smith’s Store, and the GHS porch bulletin board.

Participants who complete the scavenger hunt can pick up a free copy of the History of Greensboro or the Architectural Walking Guide to Greensboro Village at the GFL. Anyone completing the walk in Greensboro Bend is invited to stop in at Smith’s for a free creamee. In addition, the names of participants completing both walks can be entered in a raffle (stop by the GFL to submit your tickets), and three lucky winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to Wilson Farm.

Much of the information for this walk came from the booklet "An Architectural Walking Tour of Greensboro, VT" prepared by GHS in 2001. Copies of that booklet are available to check out from the GFL or are for sale at the GHS museum on a Saturday morning from 10 – 12pm.
