Historic Wallingford has published an illustrated, self-guided tour guide to exploring Wallingford. It is a brochure that highlights 20 natural, historical, and artistic points of interest along and north of the 45th Street business district.
The brochure focuses on north Wallingford since that is where Historic Wallingford has recently filed an application to designate an Historic District. The brochure has a map, pictures, either historic or current, and descriptions of the sights you are seeking out. A QR code in the brochure links to an interactive map with more information about each feature. Explore these neighborhood highlights in any order and at your own pace. You will see Wallingford in new ways if you take your time and look around!
Copies will be available at these four businesses in Wallingford until September 15: City Cellars Fine Wines – 1710 N 45th St.; The Sock Monster – 1909 N 45th St.; Yazdi – Wallingford Center, 1815 N 45th St.; and Young Tea – 2110 N 45th St.
“Wallingford is such a great, walkable neighborhood. We want to showcase a small sampling of its past and present through this activity,” said Rhonda Bush, President of Historic Wallingford. “There’s great interest in the community to connect with one another and our surroundings. We especially hope families enjoy the activity.”
Established in 2017, Historic Wallingford is an all-volunteer non-profit neighborhood organization that fosters an awareness of and appreciation for Wallingford’s history and architecture.
