Over Here: Norwalk in the First World War 

Please join us for Norwalk Preservation Trust's Seventh Annual Living History Tour!

Over Here: Norwalk in the First World War will explore the social, artistic and architectural heritage from that tumultuous time period. We will visit the homes, monuments, and memorials that tell the story of Norwalk during the Great War and its participation in the expansive industrialization that fueled America’s growth as a world power. The tour will visit houses of that era and take a trip back in time at the recently restored Wall Street Theater (opened 1914). Docents will discuss the impact of European architectural themes and the emergence of a true American architecture. The tour will also provide information about the WWI cannon on the Green — why was it given to Norwalk by France? Other sites visited will include memorials to the fallen of WWI.

Costumed actors will bring the historic period to vibrant life and an architectural historian will provide insight into the areas of Norwalk that the tour visits.  Tour attendees will travel in comfortable buses and enjoy a reception at the conclusion.
