Walking tours of the historic neighborhoods of Ipswich are led by Ipswich Town Historian Gordon Harris, who shares the histories of our historic houses and the stories of the people who lived in them. The usual version of the Historic Ipswich walking tour visits the oldest area of Ipswich, Meeting House Green, North Main, Summer Street, and a bit of East and County Streets, and takes about 2 hrs. Occasionally the tour visits High Street and the Old North Burying Ground instead of the East End.
- Location: The tours start in front of the Ipswich Public Library on Meeting House Green. View at Google Maps.
- Charge: $10 per person. No charge for small children. Group size for each tour will be limited to about a dozen people. Advance registrations are recommended, but the tour is open to walk-ins. Payments may be made by cash or check at the beginning of the tour.
