Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center is excited to announce outdoor docent-led walking tours of its historic site starting January 9.
Offering two tours: A Short Walk Through Three Centuries and Gilberts at the Cannon Ball House. Trained docents will guide the tours and share some fascinating details about the lives of the past residents. Tours are suitable for all age groups.
A Short Walk Through Three Centuries highlights the three centuries of history at Keeler Tavern Museum, from Benjamin Hoyt's first home in 1713 to the founding of the museum in 1966.

Each tour will last about 45 minutes, and online registration is required. Be sure to dress appropriately and to wear comfortable shoes suitable for covering uneven terrain.
In inclement weather, tours will be canceled two hours prior to start time. Please check the museum’s website for updates on tour status.
