The Northampton Historic Preservation Society is offering a Guided Walking Tour of Historic Eastville on Sunday, June 23 at 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. (rain or shine). Town historian David Scott will provide an informative overview of Eastville and offer a new segment covering more houses on Willow Oak Road this year.
The walking tour will start at the Northampton Court Green, one of the oldest in the country, where you can imagine how it looked at various times during its 300+ year history. Learn about the historic district, which showcases high-style and vernacular buildings. Picture Eastville in the early 1900’s when it was bustling during an economic, agricultural, and transportation boom, and Courthouse Road was a major thoroughfare in the county.
