Join Grey Towers Heritage for Milford Walk 2016 Grey Towers Mansion Tours Begin Memorial Day Weekend



MILFORD, PA – Who lived in the Milford Community House before it became a public library? Which historic figures are honored with stone carvings on the façade of Forest Hall? And what’s up with the funky décor on the exterior of Normandy Cottage? A walk around downtown Milford on Saturday, May 14, 2016, at 11 am, will answer these questions and more!

This free and public walking tour, sponsored by the Grey Towers Heritage Association and the US Forest Service, will lead participants to some of the buildings and places in the community with a connection to the prominent Pinchot family, who helped shape the region beginning in the early 1800s. Participants should meet on the lawn of the Milford Community House at the intersection of Broad and Harford streets. The 1-hour stroll through the borough will illustrate how one family influenced the beginnings of the community.

Back by popular demand, the tour will be held rain or shine. Sturdy, comfortable footwear is recommended. Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly suggested by calling 570-296-9625 or sending an email to info@greytowers.org.

Also, Grey Towers National Historic Site in Milford, the ancestral Pinchot home, will begin it 2016 regular tour season on Memorial Day weekend. Guided tours of the mansion are offered seven days a week on the hour from 11 am to 4 pm. On weekends the 4 pm tour visitors can visit all three floors of the mansion.
