Early Boalsburg was a time of stagecoaches, of corduroyed roads that often disappeared into muddy wastes, of busy settlements, of warm and friendly taverns, of gentlemen and drovers and stagecoach drivers.
Enjoy reading From the outside Looking in: OLDE BOALSBURG – A MICROCOSM – A Walking Tour (released 2021) and also observe exhibits of items and remaining commercial-residential structures that can best be used to construct a microcosm of early Boalsburg, a village erected to service the growing road network and needs of the community.
Vintage photographs will guide you down the tree-lined pathway, from east to west, to stand outside the homes of the villagers, look into the lives of those who created Boalsburg, see how villagers lived, and watch how the homes were modified over time – changed by emerging styles of architecture. Experience a microcosm of how the town was built and how, over time, technological and industrial development transformed life.
