Bus Trip! with NLCHS Staff and Fellow Members
New Bedford MA, although a much larger city, has many things in common with New London: its whaling history, its 19th century prominence, its beautiful historic homes, its ethic diversity and its active waterfront. Plan to join us on Friday 19 August, for a tour to New Bedford to explore this interesting and lively city and two of its great museums. A special point of interest at the Whaling Museum will be the recently opened exhibit on the Azorean and Cape Verdean connections to New England through the whaling trade.
Included in the tour is motor coach transportation from New London (or Stonington — we’ll pick you up), with commentary provided by our own whaling authorities; admission to the New Bedford Whaling Museum with a special guided tour by Senior Curator Michael Dyer; lunch at a waterfront restaurant; and a tour of the historic Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Gardens.
