Ironbound Walking Tour, March 21st

Join Newarkhistory.com on Sunday, March 21st at 2:00 for a walking tour of one of Newark’s most interesting and diverse neighborhoods, the Ironbound.  The tour will visit sites in the Ironbound reflective of the neighborhood’s role as a receiver for first generation immigrants and as an industrial center.  To illustrate ethnic succession the tour will visit churches that have been owned by three totally different denominations and churches that are near-copies of churches in “Old Countries” in Europe.  The tour will visit precious green space that is loved as only parks in a dense, lawn-less neighborhood can be.  Finally, the tour will pass remnants of Newark’s great industrial past and learn about the roles that Newark’s industrial tycoons once played in Newark’s life.   
The tour will begin at the intersection of Ferry and McWhorter Streets at 2:00. 

Price $10 for adults, $5 anyone 10-18, free for children.
