    Back by popular demand, join last year’s bus tour guide and history-buff Ron Clark to view key historic points in Chatham and discuss the fascinating history of our early New England town.  Special guest Tim Wood will also talk about a couple of historic Main St. locations that are part of his “Chatham Walks” walking tours during the summer.
    The virtual tour will depart from Depot Rd. next to the Chatham Railroad Museum, and will make an approximately 90-minute circuit around Historic Chatham, with tour guide narration and stops at the following locations, where a local guide from the museum / site will join the tour for a brief introduction to each site, with visuals.
    • Eldredge Public Library
    • Chatham Conservation Foundation's Mayo House
    • Chatham Godfrey Windmill
    • Atwood Museum
    • Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge
    • Chatham Lighthouse
    • Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum
    • Nickerson Family Association's Caleb Nickerson House
    • Chatham Railroad Museum
    In addition, the tour route will pass by other historic sites, including the Atwood School, the Champlain Monument, and a variety of less-well-known hidden gem historic locations in the town.
    The virtual bus tour will be conducted using Zoom technology. Participants can use a desktop or laptop computer, or a tablet (for example iPad). A smartphone can be used but is not recommended due to the small screen size. The tour will feature plenty of pictures and videos of Historic Chatham.
