Brooks Estate Guided Walk
Saturday, August 1, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
The Medford-Brooks Estate Land Trust (M-BELT) and the Medford Recreation Department invite you to an outdoor guided walk and tour of the grounds at the Shepherd Brooks Estate. Join the tour for some socially-distanced exercise and history of this wonderful Medford landmark. Those who choose to stay for an indoor tour of the Shepherd Brooks Manor post-walk can do so. Tours will be in groups of four and masks are required while indoors. Please pre-register at medfordrecreation.org.
M-BELT is a nonprofit organization that manages the Brooks Estate, owned by the City of Medford. A former Victorian summer retreat for Peter Chardon Brooks and Shepherd Brooks, the property is graced by two Victorian buildings, the Shepherd Brooks Manor and Carriage House (1880), both slated for adaptive re-use as community assets. The property also offers Brooks Pond and 50 acres of open space for birds, wildlife and nature lovers.
