STILL RIVER — A living history tour of Still River and old-fashioned “Chowda” picnic will be held Sunday, Sept. 22, from 2-5 p.m.
Begin at 2 p.m. in the Meetinghouse for a brief overview, meet the “Reverend Parker,” hear the bell, then loop around the village, stopping outside several houses to hear the “former residents” tell stories of their lives: the coming of the trains, fires, scandals, taverns, tearooms, stores, farms and dairies.
The picnic will recreate a Still River “Chowda” with music, games, clam “chowda” and Orsamus Willard’s famous mint julep and peach toddy (virgin).
Please help us plan by making reservations in advance.
Advance tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for kids five to 12 and free for kids under 5. Tickets include the tour, a bowl of Chowda, “cocktail,” and dessert.
Please make a reservation by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-456-8285. Tickets on the day of tour are $10 per person.
In case of heavy rain, the event will be held in the Meetinghouse.
