Best of Bangor Walking Tour

Recurring event see all

June 8 at 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

Bangor is a city rich in history, mystery and powerful events. Perched on the edge of the Maine North Woods and a one-time important harbor, Bangor’s history is filled with tales of lumber barons who struck it rich from her natural resources as well as shipping magnates and manufacturing pioneers. The Best of Bangor tells the stories of our first settlers, the greatest disaster in U.S. Naval History (until Pearl Harbor), the British Occupation during the War of 1812, the Great Fire of 1911 and so much more.

This tour meets at the Bangor Historical Society/Thomas A. Hill House, 159 Union Street, Bangor.

Tickets are $10 per person.
