A Walk-Through Time in the Village of North Rutland
Saturday, June 10, 2023
Please join RHS as we explore the past in the village of North Rutland. This event is
the fourth in a series of tours on the lost villages of the town of Rutland. Bob Locke
Jr., who has more than a century of family ties to the village, will be our guide. The
tour will encompass approximately one mile on relatively flat, paved surfaces. Guests
may also call ahead for directions on how to enjoy the presentations with little to no
walking required. We will meet promptly at 10 AM at the intersection of Intervale Rd.
and RT 68. Please wear comfortable shoes, and bring your imagination, as we peel
back the decades of this interesting and unusual place.
