Encore walking tour! In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Brunswick Mall, local historian Jym St. Pierre lead another tour of “From Swamp to Centerpiece: The Brunswick Town Mall at 200” on Sunday, October 1, 2023 at 1pm.
In June, 1823, three local men conveyed by deed real estate that included the Mall area stretching from Pleasant Street to First Parish Church. The town paid them five cents. The deed specified that the land was to be used only “as a public walk or Mall” forever. So far, that promise has been honored, but in many different ways over the past two centuries. As you walk around the Mall, Jym St. Pierre will talk about, and share images of, the many changes the parcel has gone through over time.
