Markethouse

FULL

Led by Randy Watts. This short two-block walk examines the history of Carlisle from 1722 to 2022, progressing from a discussion starting with the early visits of traders, to the French and Indian War and the start of the American Revolution and the US Army. We’ll then discuss events in Carlisle’s town square, including the Federalist and McClintock Riots, and visit the Soldiers’ Monument that was dedicated in 1871. From there we’ll talk about the time Geronimo visited town, the passage of President Grant as he traveled to Newville to visit in-laws and finish up with a look at the trolley stop and train station at Pitt and High Streets.

This tour is for adults only.

Members – $10 / Non-Members $15
