Summer Walking Tour
July 27 at Noon
Starting with this tour, we move to our "Interiors of Asylum Hill" stretch of the series. This Wednesday, Larry Gallmeier will take you inside Aetna, and he will talk about the history of the company and the building, which opened on January 1, 1931. Did you know, for example, that when the building first opened it had more telephone exchanges than Orange, Lebanon, and Kent combined? (800, in case you're wondering)
We'll meet at our usual spot at the corner of Farmington and Broad, and we'll enter the building at the main entrance on Farmington Avenue, across from the Cathedral of Saint Joseph. Please bring photo ID with you, as you'll check in with security.
As with last year, our "Interiors of Asylum Hill" tours require registration, in order that each building's security can know in advance how many people will be attending. Please also plan on some extra time at the start of the tour for the check-in.
The tour runs, rain or shine.
NINA is Northside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance, Inc., a non-profit founded by Aetna, The Hartford, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, and Webster Bank.
