Description

Most museums are buildings with objects in them. We’re a bit different. Although we use the Industrial History Center for exhibits and programs, we consider the entire city of Amesbury as an artifact. Join us on a walking tour, as we explore the nearby built environment to discover our industrial past. Tour participants will learn of the incredible history of the early automotive industry, how one of the first electric vehicles was developed here in Amesbury, and how auto bodies were produced here for Rolls Royce, Cadillac and many others!

PLEASE NOTE: This event was rescheduled from it’s original date on Saturday, September 16.

Special Instructions

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and bring a bottle of water!
