Visiting Wallingford

You could walk the one and a half miles from the American Silver Museum/Johnson Mansion to the Royce House; both properties are on either end 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 Downtown Wallingford. Take a turn west onto Center Street and walk to the historic Center Street Cemetery.  Check under the Resources tab (above) to find several historic walking tours.
