Student walking tour planned in Newtown


The Newtown Historic Association will conduct the annual student walking tour beginning at 10 a.m. and running until approximately 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 1. The rain date is June 8.

Over 100 children from Goodnoe Elementary School will take this traditional walking tour through the borough and township, visiting eight historic sites.

The tour begins at both the Old Presbyterian Church on Sycamore Street and the Newtown Movie Theatre. The tour then continues in the borough to the Newtown Borough Hall, Bird in Hand Tavern, Justice House, Newtown Fire Association, Newtown Library and the Half-Moon Inn (Court Inn).

The Newtown Historic Association has run this tour for over 45 years and is resuming this event after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus.
