Tour Guide

Jonathan Clark is a local historian and longtime resident of Asylum Hill. He covers important sites that are longer extant, including the Old Town Farm, the Old Town Reservoir, and Collins Street east of Garden Street. He has historic photographs that show you the view of the old sites from where you're standing, and he also typically offers a peek inside his own historic house on Huntington Street.
