Carlisle’s Industrial End Walking Tour

Out of stock


Led by Randy Watts. The East End of Carlisle was home to Carlisle’s first large industrial enterprises, the sole survivor of which is the Frog Switch Manufacturing Company. This walk, of about six blocks, will discuss the development of industries here from the 1860s to the present. We’ll visit the site of the Chain Works, the Carlisle Manufacturing Company,
Beetem Lumber, Carlisle Carpet, Letort Axle and Frog Switch Company, along with taking a look at the railroads and early streets in the area. This walk will meet at the corner of East Louther and Spring Garden Streets. A short portion of the walk will be on an unpaved roadway with an irregular surface. This portion of the tour is optional.
