The Tree Nursery on Nonantum Hill: A Durant-Kenrick Walking Tour

August 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$10 – $15

Did you know Newton Corner was the site of one of New England’s first commercial nurseries? Put yourself back in time to when the Kenrick family cultivated fruit trees, ornamental trees, and shrubberies. Travel the original acreage of the nursery, see an 1882 Kenrick house, and visit the Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds. As nature allows, taste fruit from Durant-Kenrick’s own historic gardens.

Walking tours are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Register at https://events.humanitix.com/durantkenrick2024walkingtour. For more information and a complete list of this year’s walking tours visit www.newtonma.gov/HNwalks.
