Enjoy the one and a half mile walk from the American Silver Museum/Johnson Mansion to the Royce House; the properties are at opposite ends of Main Street.

While taking your walk, you will pass the perimeter of the Choate Rosemary Hall campus on the east and many historic homes and businesses in between.


Have lunch at one of the wonderful restaurants in the center of Wallingford.

Take a turn west onto Center Street and continue to the bottom of the hill if you would like to visit the historic Center Street Cemetery.
