Join Walking In Arlington for our annual Fall Walking Tour held in cooperation with the Old Schwamb Mill. We will tour the Arlington Heights Business District and “Little Scotland”, which gets its name from the fact that nearly all the streets in the subdivision are named for places in Scotland. The walk will led by noted local historian Edward W. Gordon on Saturday, October 24, 2015, setting off at 9am. We hope you can join us. Registration in advance is necessary.

The walk will last about 2 hours, and will be held rain or shine. Please wear comfy shoes and dress for the weather. Some of the street in Little Scotland are steep. The tour is not suitable for dogs. Children are welcome if they are sturdy walkers, or will be in carriers or strollers. The group is limited to 35 people. The meeting point will be sent to pre-registered participants.

The cost of the tour is $15 per person, and reservation is required. Make checks payable to Walking In Arlington. Proceeds go to the pedestrian advocacy work of Walking in Arlington, and the historic preservation work of the Old Schwamb Mill.

Postal mail your registration and check by October 20th to Walking In Arlington, 65 Randolph Street, Arlington, MA, 02474. Please include your e-mail address and telephone number with your registration so we can send you information on the meeting point.
