Special Guided Tour of the Glen
Sunday, November 12, 1:30 pm
The Glen is the large wooded ravine area on the National Park Seminary property. Using historic photos, you will see what features are long gone and those that are still there today, both built and natural, and learn how they were used by the students. The tour is limited in size and to those 12 years old or older. Reservations will be required for this tour with payment of $25 per person. The reservation includes 30 pages of historical photos of the Glen and light refreshments.
As you walk through the wooded ravine, be prepared for uneven terrain, steps, and possible mud or water, so sturdy shoes are needed. Directions, parking, and other details will be sent a few days before the tour.
