Interested in local history? Did you know the Ridge has had people here for 12,000 years? That it once housed a school? Blacksmith shops? A stagecoach inn?
The Monkton Museum and Historical Society (MM&HS) is creating self-guided tours of the different regions of Monkton Boro. Using maps, before, and after pictures, this history tour plans to narrate points of historical significance.
