Historical Museum

Meet at the Norfolk Historical Museum for a tour of what was once Norfolk’s industrial district. Beginning at the millstone in front of the Church of Christ, we will visit Buttermilk Falls, site of a 1750 saw mill, grist mill, and iron works; then head west along the Blackberry River viewing the remains of dams and the footprints of factories such as the Aetna Silk Mill, the Norfolk & New Brunswick Hosiery Company, and the Hartford Spring & Axle company. Wear appropriate footwear for this two hour walk.
