Spirit of '76 Trail Saturday June 12th

On Saturday, June 12th, 9:00AM - we have an exciting hike in Marblehead planned, lead by Geoff Sheau.  Please contact Geoff if you plan to attend (email above).

Spirit of '76 Trail

The purpose of the 2 mile loop trail is to tell the story the townspeople of Marblehead played in the Revolutionary War.

This is a self guided walking tour of downtown Marblehead that starts at Abbot Hall. Abbot Hall is the present day Town Hall of Marblehead and doubles as a historical museum that we may be able to tour to start the hike.

There are 15 points of interest to see on the hike and a 17 questionnaire to complete. We will see historical houses, an old Fort, an old burial ground for revolutionary soldiers and learn of pirates, ghosts and witchcraft.

This is a historic trail and completion of the trail qualifies participants to receive a patch and/or medal. 

All scouts and leaders are to be in class A uniforms for the hike.
