January at Keeler Tavern: Guided Outdoor Hike, Currier & Ives, and Digital Learning

Take a Guided Outdoor Hike

Wednesdays and weekends

Starting this month, Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center is offering docent-led outdoor tours of its historic site. Tours are scheduled for Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 1 and 2 p.m., weather permitting.

Initially, KTM&HC will offer two tours, Gilberts at the Cannon Ball House and A Short Walk Through Three Centuries. Each tour will last about 45 minutes. Online registration is required. These tours are appropriate for all age groups.

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 website for status updates.

Due to the pandemic, tour groups will be limited to eight people. Visitors must wear masks and are asked to observe social-distancing protocols. Tours start at the Visitor Center and are free, but a $5 donation is suggested.

Digital Learning Programs

Thanks to a generous Quick Grant from Connecticut Humanities, KTM&HC recently upgraded its equipment and improved its ability to offer state-of-the-art digital programs.
