Lambertville Historical Society to offer Shad Fest 2016 walking tours

LHS-Walking-ToursThe Lambertville Historical Society (LHS) is participating in Shad Fest 2016 through a series of special offerings during the weekend of Saturday, April 30, and Sunday, May 1, including guided historic tours of the city each day.

The society’s museum and headquarters – the historic 1816 James Wilson Marshall house at 60 W. Bridge St.– will be open both days from 1-5 p.m., with LHS exhibits to help guests learn about the unique history of the home and its namesake. Admission is free.

The first guided historical tour by LHS on Saturday, April 30 will be geared towards kids and family, while Sunday’s version is more of a “traditional historic town tour,” say organizers. Both tours will start at the Marshall House Museum at 2 p.m. on their designated days, with a cost of $5 per family on Saturday, and $5 per individual for Sunday’s tour. LHS members may attend either tour for free.

Tours last about an hour, and no reservations are necessary.

The Lambertville Historical Society promotes, inspires and encourages the preservation and appreciation of Lambertville’s architecture and history through education, community involvement, and preserving and maintaining the James Marshall Museum. Please call (609) 397-0770 or visit their website for more information.
