Annual Walking Tour – October 13

On October 13 the Glen Ridge Historical Society will be offering its annual Fall Walking Tour. This year’s theme is Stylish Glen Ridge. The tour will be centered on Highland Avenue, one of the oldest streets in Glen Ridge.  As the neighborhood grew, so did the variety of house styles. Join us to learn about the houses and the history that led to their diverse designs! Please gather at the grassy triangle at the corner of Highland and Glen Ridge Avenues at 1:30pm.  Refreshments will be served after the tour at the home of Megan and Ryan Blank, 43 Wildwood Place. For more information please contact: glenridgehs@gmail.com
