Join Bob Coppola and take a moment back in time as he leads you on a walking tour along the New Milford Green.  Participants will meet at the New Milford Historical Society and enjoy a glass of wine or lemonade on the front steps before they are taken on a fascinating tour of New Milford's past.  Not only will the talk be about the architecture on the remaining buildings along the Green, but also about of the unique place of our Green in American history. What was on the originally on the site of Town Hall? Why was its owner famous in American history? Where did Marquee de Lafayette, a Frenchman who came to assist George Washington, dine on the Village Green? Where did runaway slaves hide on their way North to safety?
