Join us in Keene NH on August 6th for a Magical History Tour of the murals painted one weekend in June by The Walldogs, a world renowned group of 200 painters. The 16 vintage style murals depict important historic events of Keene and were voted on by the people of the community.
This Walldogs Walking tour will be conducted by Alan Rumrill, the director of the Historical Society of Cheshire County, beginning at 11:00am and ending at 12:30pm. Members are asked to meet at Railroad Square no later than 10:45am. Railroad Square is the bricked open space located on the corner of Main Street and Railroad Street between Local Burger and the Cherry Garden Restaurant.
Walking: The 16 murals are painted on the outside walls of buildings located in downtown Keene and the tour is an easy, level, urban circuit encompassing approximately 15 short blocks. To learn more, go on the website: walldogskeene.com
