Looking for a fun, interesting activity this summer?  Take the recently installed and expanded self-guided History Explorer Walk in Greensboro Village or Greensboro Bend.  

It’s a great walk for adults and children; and it includes a series of questions answered by visiting the signs posted throughout the villages. 

Follow the numbered designations to each historic location where you can read the history and answer the questionnaire. Those completing the questionnaires can redeem them for prizes at the Greensboro Free Library (GFL). 

Brochures guiding the walks can be found at Smith’s Store for the “Greensboro Bend” walk and at the GFL and GHS building on the porch bulletin board for the "Greensboro Village" walk

Click on the image to the right to learn more about the walks and to see maps and questions! 

Find photos, for example, of the first town hall or the Caspian Lake House in Greensboro Village, or the workers at the first sawmill in Greensboro Bend. 

The walk will be posted from July 3 - September

Much of the information 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.
