Living History Hike
Local architectural historian, Jane Dorchester, will share new findings gleaned from her ongoing research.
Take a unique tour of significant archaeological and historic sites that are right in your backyard, including two structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places! Beginning at the historic Chandler Mill bridge, we will follow the rugged trail along Bucktoe Creek to Bucktoe Cemetery, the final resting place of several Civil War Colored Troop veterans. We will then continue on to the ruins of the Wiggins House (c. 1840) and end with the Chandler Mill complex as we explore the area’s history of agriculture and industry. Please note that we will be following intermediate, natural trails that include rugged stream crossings and uneven terrain.
